1 killed 2 injured in Aliso Viejo gas leak explosion
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (AP) - An explosion that rocked a Southern California medical office building on Tuesday, killing a woman and injuring three other people, is being investigated as intentional and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package, a USA official told The Associated Press.
The fire service initially said a vehicle may have crashed into the side of the building, but authorities later said this may not have been the case.
A deputy with Orange County Sheriff's Department told KTLA the explosion was caused by a gas leak and the area is being evacuated. They had not released her name as of late Tuesday night.
A daycare and preschool are near the site of the explosion, but authorities say all of the children are safe.
"We have not found any type of specific device inside of the building right now that would tell us or lead us to exactly what the device was - if there was a device", Orange County sheriff's Cmdr.
Officials declared a second-alarm fire and hazmat situation, and crews successfully extinguished a fire at the building after the explosion.
Bommarito said one of the injured people suffered from smoke inhalation, but the extent of the other victims' injuries was unknown.
Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennesy said they received a call around 1:09 p.m. ". I saw two women come out full of blood, hair singed, just glass stuck to the hair, glass stuck to their bodies".
Bomb squad investigators and FBI agents are looking into what caused the blast but authorities said there was no lingering threat, according to NBC. The injured were taken to a hospital.
Fire and sheriff's officials said the building appeared to be undergoing some type of renovation.
