Dead, Others Injured in Explosion at Aliso Viejo Medical Building

The explosion occurred at about 1 p.m. and caused damage to the first floor of the two-story building, which was under construction.

Chief Fennesy noted the building where the explosion occurred was being renovated.

"We have not found any type of specific device inside of the building right now that would tell us or lead us to exactly what the device was - if there was a device", Orange County sheriff's Cmdr. The extent of the injuries was not immediately known.

An Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman said: "We're trying to determine if a vehicle was involved or if it was an accident or inside the building". No children were injured, officials said.

Sky5 footage showed crews evacuating people-including children, some in cribs-out of the Academy on the Hills, a preschool across the building where the explosion happened.

Nearly immediately after the lawsuit was filed, the state's attorney general said he would not defend the new law. Their lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Polk County District Court, they announced at a press conference Tuesday.

McWilliams said she saw two burned women staggering out of the building, covered in ash and soot.

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

The explosion, in a normally tranquil South Orange County city, prompted the evacuation of nearby businesses and a school filled with children, officials said. Dave Sawyer says authorities haven't determined whether the explosion was accidental or intentional.

There was no immediate information about the person who was killed.

One woman, who had skin peeling on her arm from burns, said, "Take care of my mother", McWilliams said.

Fire and sheriff's officials said the building appeared to be undergoing some type of renovation.
