1 person killed in 'intentional' explosion at CA medical facilit

Aliso Viejo blast: Mystery explosion kills woman in Orange County California

The official was briefed on the investigation but wasn't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The sheriff's department is partnering with the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, who will assist the investigation.

Nothing indicates there were any threats made before the blast, which appeared to be concentrated in a suite on the first floor of the office building, Sawyer said.

Associated Press writer Michael Balsamo in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

The explosion blew out walls and windows, heavily damaging the first floor corner of the two-story building and hurling debris outside, said Capt. Two of the injured individuals had unknown accidents, and the third particular person suffered smoke-inhalation, in response to officers.

Orange County sheriff's experts along with FBI, the ATF and other federal agencies are investigating the cause of the blast.

"Anytime you see an explosion of this magnitude, it would definitely be suspicious to us and that's why we rolled out all the resources to get to the bottom of it", he said.

Bomb technicians are inside the medical building in Aliso Viejo, which was undergoing a renovation, to determine the cause, officials said.

Shorly after the blast, Mary McWilliams of San Clemente arrived for an appointment to find smoke surrounding the area and auto alarms going off.

Witness Mary Mack-Williams described the chaotic scene immediately after the explosion, saying he saw bloodied women fleeing from the building, their faces were covered with ash.

One girl, who had pores and skin peeling on her arm from burns, stated, "Care for my mom", McWilliams stated. The other woman was bleeding from her head. The injured were taken to a hospital.

Authorities say one person is dead and three others have injuries after an explosion rocked a Southern California office building. Tony Bommarito of the Orange County Fire Authority said, according to NBC News.

He said buildings in the area had been damaged by the blast.

Sawyer said that investigators were going through the interior of the building to find out a cause.

The identity of the female victim who was killed, has yet to be released. No children were injured, officials said.

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.
