Plumbing and gas work may have caused a 7-alarm fire and explosion in Manhattan’s East Village Thursday afternoon. 12 people have been hurt, three critically, in the fiery explosion that sent four buildings up in flames. Three of the buildings have now collapsed. Witnesses say a thunderous explosion rocked the five story building. Then within seconds fire engulfed it. One witness Ron spoke with said he could see people trapped inside to leap from the windows. Hundreds of firefighters poured in to battle the raging inferno, dense, black smoke making it almost impossible to see just a few feet. Ron was on the scene shortly after the explosion.
