Gas Explosion Injures 8 People In Portland

2016-10-19 22:09:031 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

A gas explosion injured eight people on Wednesday morning in a neighborhood west of downtown Portland, Oregon. The injuries could have been much worse had "authorities not evacuated the building when they did." The building housed a bagel shop and a salon that were both evacuated. The blast occurred around 9:39 a.m. local time, following reports of a strong gas odor. None of the injuries are life-threatening. Investigators determined the cause of the blast was from damage to a natural gas line pipe in a building. A witness said the building "exploded in all directions."
