My wife just called in a panic. The explosion is near my daughter's school and the news coverage is from the same block as the school and there's a ton of smoke and fumes.

Looking at the live footage the building is gone, with the side buildings on fire I dunno.
Hope everyone's all right.
Anyone know what type of building it was?.
