PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - An apparent utility malfunction on Thursday caused an underground explosion that forced the evacuation of several high-rise buildings in central Philadelphia, Fox television news reported. CNN quoted the FBI as saying there was no apparent terrorism link. The network said the three Philadelphia explosions came as the electric company worked on underground cables. There were no reports of injuries.
Rotolo said some parts of the surrounding area had been sealed off by police. She would not comment on media reports that the explosion was caused by an electrical fault. The cause was not immediately known.
