1 killed, 3 injured in explosion in California

Firefighters at the scene of the Aliso Viejo explosion

Authorities say one person is dead and two others have injuries after an explosion rocked a Southern California office building.

The Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) said the explosion occurred on the first floor.

"We have not determined what caused the blast", said Carrie Braun, a Public Information Officer at Orange County Sheriff's Department.

There are unconfirmed reports of explosive devices on the scene of the blast in Orange County.

However, Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun said no vehicle was involved in the explosion and there is an investigation to find out what caused it, according to NBC.

The fire service initially said a vehicle may have crashed into the side of the building, but authorities later said this may not have been the case. Hazardous materials investigators were on the scene.

As soon as the microphone was in her hand, however, Anthony delivered a rendition of " Perfect " that floored the pop star. Pink asked. "Are you the singer?" "How do you follow that?" Congrats to Anthony for making her dream come true.

That building is located at 11 Mareblu, OCFA tweeted.

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. The condition of the injured were not immediately known.

They said they were not actively looking for any suspects.

Video from the scene showed teachers leading the children along a sidewalk toward the Target.

"Then everyone started running out of buildings everywhere with looks on their faces of just horror", the woman said. "... I saw two women come out full of blood, hair singed, just glass stuck to the hair, glass stuck to their bodies".

Sheriff's deputies were called to the same block of Mareblu at 11:35 p.m. Monday for a "patrol check", according to sheriff's records.
