NEW YORK — An explosion inside a Chinatown building on Thursday led to a fire and a partial collapse, injuring a dozen people, including firefighters, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Three of those injured were hospitalized in serious condition. Injuries to the other people, including the four firefighters, were less severe and included burns.
Fire officials said several pesticide canisters, or so-called bug bombs, were found in the first floor rear apartment and may have exploded, but the cause of the blaze hadn't been determined. Investigators were also looking into a possible gas leak.
