From Firehouse.com: Editor's Note: It was announced at a late evening press conference that nine Springfield firefighters and two police officers were among the 18 hurt. The injuries were not believed to be serious. SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A natural gas explosion in one of New England's biggest cities on Friday destroyed two buildings, including one housing a strip club, and damaged others beyond repair but didn't kill anyone, authorities said. Firefighters, police officers and gas company workers in the area because of an earlier gas leak and odor report were among more than a dozen people injured, authorities said. "This is a miracle on Worthington Street that no one was killed," Lt. Gov. Tim Murray said at a press conference. http://www.firehouse.com/news/10833226/firefighters-among-injured-in-gas-blast-in-mass
It looks like a bomb exploded and luckily, no one was killed, though some shorts probably had to be cleaned out.
