Baltimore’s Deadly Explosion: 1 Killed, 7 Injured
Investigators are looking into what appears to be a large, deadly gas explosion in Baltimore.
The blast happened Monday morning.
Baltimore police say one woman was killed in the explosion, seven others were hurt, and three homes were destroyed.
Search crews looked all day for anyone stuck under what was left.
One man who was driving past at the time of the explosion, Mannie Mobley Sr., says he feels lucky to have survived.
“Stuff flying through the air and I kept smelling, I don’t know even know if was gas or smoke or whatever it was, it sounded like a bomb blew up,” Mobley says.
The exact cause of the explosion is still unknown, but the gas lines used in the buildings dated back to the early 1960s.
