Nine firefighters were injured and multiple buildings destroyed after a huge explosion in Seattle on Wednesday morning.
The cause of the blast is still under investigation, but there's speculation a gas leak the firefighters responded to about 40 minutes earlier could be to blame.
Dozens of emergency personnel rushed to the northern Greenwood neighborhood as nearby residents were evacuated.
