gas explosion/ 燃气爆炸
/ (ránqìbàozhà)

A: Shall we go for a jog this weekend and catch a movie on our way back? 

这周末要不要去公园健走, 顺路看场电影?

(zhèzhōumò yàobùyào qùɡōnɡyuán jiànzǒu, shùnlù kànchǎnɡdiànyǐnɡ?)

B: No, I need to clean the kitchen and check for gas leaks.   

不行, 我需要把厨房打扫一下, 再好好检查一下燃气有没有泄漏。

(bùxínɡ, wǒxūyào bǎchúfánɡ dǎsǎoyíxià, zàihǎohǎo jiǎncháyíxià ránqì yǒuméiyǒu xièlòu.)

A: You must have watched that video clip reporting a gas explosion in a residential house in Jiamusi, Heilongjiang Province and decided to carry out a thorough cleaning. 

你准是看了报道黑龙江佳木斯某小区一居民家发生燃气爆炸的视频, 决定彻底收拾一下吧。

(nǐzhǔnshì kànle bàodào hēilónɡjiānɡ jiāmùsī mǒuxiǎoqū yìjūmínjiā fāshēnɡ ránqìbàozhàde shìpín, juédìnɡ chèdǐ shōushí yíxiàba.)

B: Yes, the emergency department reported that the explosion was suspected of being caused by a gas leak, resulting in one death and two injuries. 

对, 应急部门通报, 爆炸疑似燃气泄漏引起,导致1人死亡2人受伤。

(duì, yīnɡjí bùmén tōnɡbào, bàozhàyísì ránqìxièlòu yǐnqǐ, dǎozhì yīrénsǐwánɡ liǎnɡrén shòushānɡ.)

A: Gas needs to be checked regularly, and the stove surface should be kept clean, otherwise oil stains and dust stains can easily catch fire.

燃气需要定期检查, 灶台也要保持清洁, 不然油渍、污渍非常容易着火。

(ránqì xūyào dìnɡqī jiǎnchá, zàotái yěyào bǎochí qīnɡjié, bùrányóuzì, wūzì fēichánɡ rónɡyì zháohuǒ.)

B: I plan to get familiar about how to deal with gas leaks after I clean. 

我打算清扫干净后再熟悉一下燃气泄漏怎么处理。

(wǒdǎsuàn qīnɡsǎo ɡànjìnɡhòu zàishúxi yíxiàránqìxièlòu zěnme chǔlǐ.)
