Multiple People Reported Injured After Gas Explosion at Florida Shopping Center

Multiple injuries reported in gas explosion at Florida shopping center

We thought it was thunder at first, and then we felt the building shake and things started falling.

A man wearing a Carrabba's Italian Grill baseball cap also initially thought the explosion was an natural disaster.

The department did not say what could have caused the explosion. "I've seen buildings blow up in the past but I've never seen it like this.it was just so much debris".

Cellphone video captured a gray and white cloud of smoke moments after the blast.

Windows were shattered and debris was scattered throughout the area and parking lot. A pizza restaurant next door was closed when the explosion hit.

Debris is strewn all over a vehicle park in another shocking clip. Windows were blown out of an LA Fitness.

A vacant restaurant exploded in a Florida shopping center Saturday, damaging neighboring businesses and sending debris flying. Another 15 to 20 people had injuries that were not life-threatening. "We know that there were two that were serious. The others were transported locally".

Natural gas has been turned off in the entire area, fire officials said. Ambulances transported 13 people to the Westside Regional Medical Center, hospital officials told ABC news. A ruptured gas line was found the rubble, Gordon said.

"A search has been completed of the building itself", Gordon said.

"We believe we have accounted for everybody at this point", Gordon said.

Gordon said there was an active gas leak at the scene when firefighters responded about 11:30 a.m. No additional victims have been located.

A major avenue running past the mall was shut down.

The owner said their business is closed for the holiday weekend so luckily there were no children inside learning how to code. "It's still going", he added before saying "this could have been a lot worse".

People who are waiting to hear from family members are asked to gather at Central Park, 9151 N.W. 2nd Place.

"It was a loud explosion and you couldn't tell where it was coming from", Davis said. "We've been there for like an hour or two".

The state fire marshal, the Florida Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the bomb and arson units from the Broward Sheriff's Office are also on site investigating the explosion.
