Houston Explosion – level 3
An explosion happened at a manufacturing business in Houston, Texas, on Friday at around 4:30 AM. Authorities said that two people died, and one person was taken to hospital.
According to police, an investigation is under way, and there is nothing to suggest that the explosion was intentional.
Photos from the scene showed the business engulfed in flames, and debris from the explosion damaged houses as far as a half-mile away.
