The explosion at the office building in Aliso Viejo - about 50 miles (80.5 kilometers) south of Los Angeles - blew siding off the walls, exposing insulation and framing.


Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, said: "We are still trying to determine if this explosion was accidental or intentional". ". I saw two women come out full of blood, hair singed, just glass stuck to the hair, glass stuck to their bodies". The other woman was burned and her head was bleeding.

This photo taken from video provided by KABC-TV shows a building after an explosion in Aliso Viejo, California, May 15, 2018. OCFA said a bomb squad was sent in to assess the situation and investigate the cause of the blast.

Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy says 10 engines and 70 firefighters were dispatched in response to a 1:09 p.m. Tuesday call from Aliso Viejo.

It wasn't immediately clear how many people were hurt, but authorities said there were at least two patients transported. The cause of the blast was being investigated.
