‘Major Gas Explosion’ in Baltimore Kills At Least One; Three Homes Reduced to Rubble (Video)


Live footage from the Washington Post

A “major gas explosion” involving three homes in northeast Baltimore has left one dead, at least two hospitalized and multiple people, including children, trapped under rubble, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.

The three homes at Labyrinth and Reistertown are “pretty much crumbled” and the force of the blast blew out windows at homes all along the street, said fire department spokeswoman Blair Adams.

William Ewell, 32, told The Washington Post that he was startled out of bed upon hearing a loud boom around 9:30 Monday morning.

“I thought we were under attack or in war,” Ewell said, who lives three doors down on the opposite side of the street from the explosion. “That’s what I initially thought.”

His house alarm was blasting, the living room windows were shattered and glass covered the floor. The storm door was broken off its hinges. When he peered outside, Ewell saw what looked like a demolition site where his neighbors homes once sat.

“I was just stunned,” he said. “I have never experienced anything like this in my whole life.”
