It's believed a fuel tank exploded in the underground basement of a building in the 10th arrondissement.
In a brief statement, the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, said two workers had died and others were still buried under the rubble.
"The circumstances of this tragedy are not yet determined and the investigation will shed light on this terrible accident," he said.
French media report that workers were repairing a fuel tank on-site at the time of the explosion. A medical outpost was established on rue d'Enghien.
