The notifier advised that the patient's description of events was that the gas cooker ignited while boiling water for coffee. When this activity was complete they immediately started cooking breakfast. About half way through cooking they detected a strange odour from the gas cooker and bent in closer to have a look. At that time there was an explosion and all three sustained burns. Energy Safety attempted to contact the patients to no avail. This event is noted for trend analysis.
