Gas leak likely to blame for blast at shopping plaza

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Author­i­ties sus­pect a gas leak as the cause of an ex­plo­sion Satur­day morn­ing at a shopping cen­ter in Plan­ta­tion, Florida, that injured about 20 peo­ple.

“When we ar­rived we found pa­tients scat­tered all about the de­bris area,” Plan­ta­tion Fire Res­cue Deputy Chief Joel Gordon said. Two peo­ple were taken to Broward Health Med­i­cal Cen­ter in serious condition. No deaths have been re­ported.

The blast orig­i­nated from a former pizza restau­rant. For­tu­nately, a neigh­bor­ing busi­ness, a com­puter learn­ing store for chil­dren called Code Nin­jas, was not open at the time.
