The Associated Press reported that a natural gas explosion took place in Seattle early Wednesday morning.
As quoted in the publication:
Crews were responding to reports of a natural gas leak when the explosion happened along the main thoroughfare of the city’s Greenwood neighbourhood, just north of downtown, Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Corey Orvold said.
As the neighbourhood hummed to life Wednesday morning, crews were still dousing an active flame with foam. Residents were checking out the damage and the rubble and glass that littered the streets was being swept up. Employees from one cafe damaged in the blast were pouring coffee for firefighters.
