Southern California explosion being probed as intentional

The Latest Official Explosion being probed as intentional

Late Tuesday afternoon, NBC4 - citing unnamed federal sources - said investigators had determined that the blast was an "intentional detonation", and the explosive device was delivered to the building, addressed to a specific person.

The explosion came from the inside out, and the first floor is heavily damaged.

A USA official says a deadly explosion at a Southern California office building is being investigated as an intentional act and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package.

Officials didn't consider the explosion suspicious and they found no explosive devices.

A third person suffered smoke inhalation, fire officials said.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene, and three others were injured, OCFA said.

The FBI said there was no initial indication of terrorism, but the agency would continue to investigate.

McWilliams says she saw two women covered in ash and soot stagger out of the building. Bomb technicians are inside the medical building in Aliso Viejo, which was undergoing a renovation, to determine the cause, officials said. Other people could be seen wheeling cribs down the street as the area was evacuated.

"Take care of my mother, take care of my mother!" shouted one woman as she fled, according to NBC4.

By mid-afternoon, officials said they did not believe there was any further threat to the community. The other woman was bleeding from her head.

Two survivors had critical injuries "that were consistent with an explosion, but not necessarily consistent with a bomb", said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
