Here is a translation of a local news report. Residents say they saw a fireball in the sky before the explosion and a strange powder smell. In another
report I was looking at the locals say there was no fire, only an explosive force, which is rather odd.
The fact occurred minutes before 2 o'clock in the morning, in a building located on the intersection of Luis Vernet and Los Andes, a town of Monte
Grande, Esteban Echeverría partido.
The causes of the explosion are still unknown, but the residents of the place that witnessed the fact claim "a ball of fire fell from the sky".
"Began to feel much smell as if it were to powder", he recalled one of the people living in the area in statements.
"There is no explanation for what happened," said Cayetano, a neighbor of the place, in statements to Radio 10, then add that "a neighbor ran
because he saw a blue fireball falling".
The Commander of the local fire brigade headquarters, Guillermo Pérez, remarked that the causes of the incident are still not known, but
acknowledged that the first version aims at an "object that fell from the sky".
"I heard that version, but I cannot claim her in the first instance." "We must address the expertise to actually see what happened," said in
statements to Radio 10.
Perez confirmed that two houses and a trade "were completely shattered".
By the fact, one older woman who had been trapped under the rubble lost his life while six others managed to be rescued and were transferred to her
attention to a local hospital, informed C5N firemen working in the place.
The victim is one of the people who lived in the building where the explosion was generated. With regard to the injured, three belong to that House
and three others to the House lined, affected by the outbreak. All the injured are out of danger, said C5N.
According to the story of neighbors, the outbreak was felt even in localities adjoining as Ezeiza and Temperley, South of greater Buenos Aires.
