July 29, 2013 3:00 PM

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eight people, including two children, were injured following a row home explosion and collapse in Philadelphia Monday morning.

The incident happened at about 11 a.m. in the 400 block of Daly Street in South Philadelphia.

Chopper 3 HD was over the scene where one row home collapsed and two others partially collapsed following what witnesses are calling an explosion. The addresses of the homes impacted were 426-430 Daly Street.

Neighbors said they heard a loud rumble and a strong odor of gas was noticeable shortly after the collapse.

Joe Szymborski said he was laying in bed when he heard the explosion. “I threw on my shoes, ran down there and helped three people out of the house,” said Szymborski.
Live Free or Die
I live like 3 blocks away and man it was a mess. From the reports it seems like a guy installing a new water heater might have caused the accident. Either that or a drone strike Tongue
