Car Crashes Into Building, Killing 1 and Causing Possible Explosion

"Anytime you see an explosion of this magnitude, it would definitely be suspicious to us", Sawyer said. Dave Sawyer, however, told reporters at an early evening briefing that investigators "don't know if it was an intentional detonation of a device".

One person was killed and at least two others were injured in a possible explosion at a structure in Aliso Viejo on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

"It's awful, it's a tragedy", Orange County Fire Authority spokesman Tony Bommarito told ABC News.

A US official says a deadly explosion at a Southern California office building is being investigated as an intentional act and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package.

The explosion was reported before 1:25 p.m.at a two-story office building located at 11 Mareblu.

Federal sources told the NBC4 I-Team that an explosive device was delivered to the Aliso Viejo building at some point during the day, though it's unclear when.

The official said the information was based on a preliminary investigation. Mr. Bommarito said all three were expected to survive.

Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman with the Orange County Sheriff's Office, said: "We are still trying to determine if this explosion was accidental or intentional".

Three people were transported to local hospitals, Bommarito said.

The blast blew off walls and an entire bottom floor of the building. Tony Bommarito and sheriff's officials said later that was not the case. There is no specific person that authorities are searching for right now, he added.

Orange County sheriff's experts along with FBI, the ATF and other federal agencies are investigating the cause of the blast.

Soon after, Carrie Braun, an Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesperson, denied that a auto was involved in the incident and said the investigation into what caused the explosion is still ongoing.

Dong Shin, a witness, said he heard a loud boom minutes before his appointment in a nearby building.

Shin said it felt like "a big quake", and as he and others rushed downstairs to get out of the nearby building, he saw two holes in the wall of the medical facility. "My whole body shook".
