    Probably a gas leak.

    A woman called the utility minutes before complaining of a strong gas smell coming from outside.

    I know such terms are relative, but would you consider that a 'massive' explosion?

    I would say it is larger than most people have ever dealt with. From the report, the building collapsed from the explosion. That isn't exactly a fire cracker, but it isn't little boy either.

    I agree with that. I just think it's a little dramatic, is all. But it's the media, so....

    At least two people were killed after a massive explosion and raging fire Wednesday morning in Manhattan's East Harlem, authorities said.
    Just two?

    That's what they're reporting, now.

    Gas leak with little warning.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
