A Brooklyn explosion accident of yet unknown origins injured six people. The blast occurred on a typically quiet street in the Cypress Hills neighborhood. The blast was powerful enough to send debris across the street.
The Brooklyn explosion accident resulted in a fire. According to officials, the blaze was able to be brought under control in a fairly short period of time.
The explosion is thought to have occurred in the basement of the building. People were impacted by the blast on different floors of the property.
Six People Injured in Brooklyn Blast
Two of the injured people were on the third floor of the building at the time of the explosion. They were able to evacuate the building. While they did sustain injuries, they are not thought to be life threatening.
Four other people were injured in the fire that resulted from the Brooklyn explosion accident. They were transported to an area hospital. Their injuries are not believed to be life threatening. With that said, their precise conditions have not been released to the public.
Fire Spread to Other Buildings
While firefighters were able to bring the fire under control in a relatively short period of time, they were not able to accomplish this objective until after the blaze spread to other buildings. Specifics regarding the extent of damages to the building where the explosion occurred and the buildings where the fire spread have not been fully evaluated.
Investigation Into Brooklyn Explosion Accident Commenced
An investigation is now underway in regard to the cause of the Brooklyn explosion accident. There is no information regarding how long the prob is expected to take. No information has been released that speculates regarding the cause of the Brooklyn explosion accident.
Having made note of the status of the investigation, one point can be made. Oftentimes, the cause of these types of blasts is something associated with a natural gas pipeline or natural gas service to a building. Again, it is important to emphasize that no statement has yet been made regarding possible causes of the blast. Nonetheless, considering other types of similar explosions, a fair hypothesis is that the Brooklyn explosion accident very well may be associated with a natural gas pipeline or natural gas service to the building.
