At least 10 injured in Maryland apartment fire, explosion
GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) — A fire official in Maryland says at least 10 people were injured in an explosion and fire at an apartment building.
Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Assistant Chief Daniel Ogren says crews responded to the garden apartment complex on Quince Orchard Boulevard in Gaithersburg on Wednesday morning on reports of a building explosion and fire with a partial collapse.
Ogren says 10 people have been taken to hospitals with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
He says no one has been reported missing, but that once the building is safe to enter, firefighters will search to make sure no one else is inside.
Ogren says there’s no information available about what might have caused the explosion.
