According to Local media reports, the successive explosions rocked due to the scores of cars parked in the locality.

Hundreds of homes as well as a community college were included in the area.

The Ball of flames originated from the epicenter of the explosion, which was as high as 100 feet. A cloud of dark smoke was pouring from the top of the fire ball, which is common with jet fuel fires.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Ian Gregor said no plane had gone down in the neighborhood. “At this time we don’t think it’s a plane”. First responders via emergency scanners initially said, “A ‘large commercial aircraft’ had crashed in the area, setting scores of homes on fire.
