Authorities investigate California explosion as intentional

California explosion

A woman who was on her way to an appointment in the area told CBS2 she arrived just after the blast occurred, and she saw fire on the roof of the building.

Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes speaks to the media on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 regarding an explosion at a Aliso Viejo medical building the previous day.

One woman was killed and three others were injured during the Tuesday afternoon explosion at a medical office building in Aliso Viejo.

Krajnyak, a married mother-of-one of Coto de Caza, Orange County, was a licensed cosmetologist who ran day spa Magyar Kozmetika out of the first floor of the building.

Prior to Barnes identifying the victim, her son told KTLA in a telephone interview that the family hadn't heard from Krajnyak since the explosion. The neighbor says Krajnyak was her mother's caretaker and describes the husband as a massage therapist and nice man.

The Los Angeles Times, citing two law enforcement sources, reported that investigators believed it may have been caused by a package.

The bomb squad combed the scene for answers Tuesday but officials have not yet said what led to the explosion. Officials said other potential causes such as a gas leak have been ruled out.

The officials say there have been no arrests.

"We are going to take every precaution necessary before we enter that building", Bommarito said.

Two injured people are expected to survive after surgery and a third was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and released.

Authorities say one person is dead and two others have injuries after an explosion rocked a Southern California office building.

But others have argued that a younger actress should play the character since Kalama Khan is a teenager after all. She debuted in 2013, and she is one of the very few Muslim characters in the Marvel Comics world.

McWilliams said she saw two burned women staggering out of the building, covered in ash and soot. Official list of victims, the name of the person of interest in the case and technical data on explosive device used is still unavailable to the press.

The officials said the explosion did not appear to be part of a broader plot and there was no immediate connection to any extremist groups.

But police have not confirmed this and they say no device was found.

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.

A federal official told The Associated Press late Tuesday that the explosion was believed to be an intentional act and the blast may have come from a package. She and the three injured were likely in close proximity to the explosion, Sawyer said.

The Tuesday afternoon blast occurred in Aliso Viejo, which is about 50 miles south of Los Angeles.

"The corner of that building, the whole bottom floor is pretty much blown out", fire Capt.

"Anytime you see an explosion of this magnitude, it would definitely be suspicious to us", Sawyer said.

A sheriff's spokeswoman, Carrie Braun, added: "We're trying to determine if a vehicle was involved or if it was an accident or inside the building".

"At first I was scared only because the people running around had a lot of fear in their faces", he said.
