One dead, three injured in explosion at California medical center

Emergency services attending the explosion in Aliso Viejo

At least one person was killed and two others injured in an explosion at a building in Orange County, California, CBS Los Angeles reports. The FBI said there was no initial indication of terrorism, but the agency would continue to investigate out of caution. The person who died was inside the building when the blast occurred.

A deputy with Orange County Sheriff's Department told KTLA the explosion was caused by a gas leak and the area is being evacuated.

Late Tuesday afternoon, NBC4 - citing unnamed federal sources - said investigators had determined that the blast was an "intentional detonation", and the explosive device was delivered to the building, addressed to a specific person.

Authorities had not found an explosive device Tuesday night but were searching through debris that was left after the blast.

Sheriff's officials said the size of blast made it suspicious.

McWilliams says she saw two women covered in ash and soot stagger out of the building.

Everyone has been treated equally in the film. "I don't like the kind of exposing (skin show) franchise is known for". But Salman had stated the reason for the delay in one of his tweet when he said they weren't ready with the trailer.

The explosion, in a normally tranquil South Orange County city, prompted the evacuation of nearby businesses and a school filled with children, officials said.

The injured were taken to a hospital and there's no immediate word on their conditions.

The fire at the building at 11 Mareblu was quickly doused following the roughly 1:10 p.m. explosion.

"The survivors' injuries were consistent with an explosion, but not necessarily consistent with a bomb".

Bomb squad investigators and FBI agents are looking into what caused the blast but authorities said there was no lingering threat, according to NBC. No children were injured, officials said.

Crews extinguished a fire that had erupted in the building.
