Aliso Viejo blast: Mystery explosion kills woman in Orange County California

Firefighters at the scene of the Aliso Viejo explosion

An explosion that rocked a Southern California medical office building on Tuesday, killing a woman and injuring three other people, is being investigated as intentional and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package, a US official told The Associated Press. The business is on the first floor of the building. Two hours later, the footage shows several large, unmarked vehicles arriving and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents getting out and approaching the home.

"At this time we have ruled out the potential for this to be an accident", Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes told reporters Wednesday.

Barnes did not provide any details of the warrants, but NBC4 reported from the scene in Long Beach that a man was being questioned at the scene, and neighbors reported that he had recently broken up with his girlfriend and was distraught.

The woman who was killed inside the building was "in close proximity" to the explosion, Sawyer said.

Authorities declined to publicly say if they believed the spa owner was targeted, but one official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press that she had been the intended recipient of an explosive package.

He said those items were being shipped to the FBI's crime lab for analysis.

A deadly explosion at a California medical facility - so powerful it blew out walls of the building and caused the ground to shake in nearby structures - shows no sign of a gas leak and police can't say for certain whether it was intentional.

There was no immediate information about the person who was killed.

Authorities initially responded to the building at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday on a report that a vehicle had crashed into the building, but Orange County Fire Authority Capt.

Authorities did not actually enter the building until late Tuesday, trying to ensure there was no danger of additional explosions.

Rescuers extinguished the fire, which broke out in the building.

Charl Schwartzel (66), Patrick Cantlay (68) and Danny Lee (66) are Simpson's nearest rivals heading into the penultimate round. Rickie Fowler (71) - the 2015 victor - and four-time major champion McIlroy (74) were not so fortunate as they missed the cut.

The third victim was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

By mid-afternoon, officials said they did not believe there was any further threat to the community. Two other people, believed to be patrons, suffered injuries which required surgery and are expected to survive.

Little children holding hands and others being pushed in rolling cribs were led by firefighters to a Target parking lot to be united with parents.

Fennessy says children at a daycare across the street were not injured.

Video from the scene showed teachers leading the children along a sidewalk toward the Target.

Mary McWilliams of San Clemente tells the Orange County Register that she saw two women with burns stagger out of the building. Her face was covered in blood, he said. "Their skin was burnt and peeled back".

"... They weren't on fire, they were helping each other across the street, walking very slowly and a lot of shock, shaking, just full of ash all over their face, eyes bloodshot, just blood all over", the woman said.

The explosion occurred at approximately 1:10 p.m. Tuesday in a day spa located on the ground floor of a two-story outpatient medical clinic located at 11 Mareblu. Barnes said the response was a "deputy-initiated" check of the property at 15 Mareblu.

CNN's law enforcement source also cautioned that the investigation was in its preliminary stages.

Tiffany said the family still hadn't been notified Wednesday if Krajnyak was dead or alive. Some media reports have indicated that Krajnyak had recently been through a hard relationship breakup.

Neighbors of Krajnyak said that she and her husband were separated but still living in the same house. All patients were evacuated and rescue service County orange.
