“It appeared as if one house had exploded, and two others were engulfed in fire. Multiple other homes were damaged with windows blown out,” Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County said in a Facebook post.

It is still unclear what triggered the explosion, but authorities say the cause is still under investigation. The probe will be a “slow and long process” that could potentially take months, even years, to complete, officials said, according to the BBC

For now, gas and electric services have been closed off in the area and emergency crews are working at the scene. As per CNN, the Red Cross and Salvation Army are also assisting residents impacted by the explosion, the county said.
