This picture taken from cellphone video reveals a constructing after a deadly explosion in Aliso Viejo, Calif., Tuesday, Might 15, 2018.

Carrie Braun, an Orange County Sheriff's Division spokeswoman, stated authorities had been working to find out if the explosion was an accident or an intentional act, the newspaper reported. The cause of the blast is being investigated.

An explosion that rocked a Southern California medical workplace constructing on Tuesday, killing a lady and injuring three different individuals, is being investigated as intentional and investigators consider the blast could have come from a bundle, a USA official informed The Related Press.

The official said the information was based on a preliminary investigation.

But police have not confirmed this and they say no device was found.

Nothing indicates there were any threats made before the blast, which appeared to be concentrated in a suite on the first floor of the office building, Sawyer said. The building sits in the shadow of the 73 toll road, which cuts through south Orange County, and across the street from a day-care center.




Federal, state and local authorities, including the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, are investigating the blast, which occurred on the first floor of a building that was under renovation.

A daycare and preschool are near the site of the explosion, but authorities said all of the children are safe.

A woman who was on her way to an appointment in the area told CBS2 she arrived just after the blast occurred, and she saw fire on the roof of the building. Tony Bommarito and sheriff's officials said later that was not the case.

Witness Mary Mack-Williams described the chaotic scene immediately after the explosion, saying he saw bloodied women fleeing from the building, their faces were covered with ash. McWilliams says one woman had skin peeling on her arm. The other woman was bleeding from her head.

Dong Shin said he had seen "fire, smoke, insulation popping out of the walls, a lot of scared people running around, a lot of commotion".

Bommarito said one of the injured people suffered from smoke inhalation, but the extent of the other victims' injuries was unknown. Aliso Viejo is about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Little children holding hands and others being pushed in rolling cribs were led by firefighters to a Target parking lot to be united with parents.
