KIRO reports the blast in the coastal town of Port Orchard leveled the building and shattered windows at an elementary school hundreds of yards away.

A reporter for the station said people miles from the site felt the explosion.

Firefighters are still searching for possible victims; the homeowners were unaccounted for as of Tuesday morning. What caused the explosion is unknown.
