Gas explosion in Flushing
From the NY Post:
A suspected gas blast last night ripped the back wall off these two row homes in Queens. Two people were hurt.
The explosion, at 32-25 Leavitt St. in Flushing, was reported at 7:43 p.m. One person was rushed to New York Hospital's burn center in Manhattan; the other was taken to New York Hospital of Queens. Officials said neither had life-threatening injuries.
Fire officials say a man bleeding propane from a tank may have triggered the blast. A city demolition crew was sent to demolish the home.
