    FDNY responding to reports of building collapse, explosion in NYC

    The NYPD and FDNY are responding to reports of an explosion and building collapse in upper Manhattan.

    The fire department confirmed in a tweet that the explosion involves multiple buildings and have escalated the response to four alarms, with 39 units and 168 members responding.

    According to ABC News, witnesses reported hearing a large explosion in the six-story apartment building on Park Avenue in East Harlem around 9:30 a.m local time.

    “The whole building shook,” one nearby worker told the New York Post.

    According to NBC's New York affiliate, at least four people were transported to local hospitals. Their conditions are unknown.

    Metro North train service into and out of Grand Central Terminal was temporarily suspended as a result.

    Photos posted to Twitter appear to show smoke and dust north of Central Park.

    Not to worry- it's just part of mayor DiBlasio's urban renewal program.

    Authorities respond to massive explosion in East Harlem

    (CNN) -- New York police and fire officials were responding to reports of a massive explosion in Manhattan's East Harlem, authorities said Wednesday.

    There were at least 11 minor injuries as clouds of dark smoke rose over the residential neighborhood of red-brick tenements, fire officials said.

    Metro North commuter rail service, which runs along the site of the blast on Park Avenue, was suspended, officials said.

    "Two buildings have collapsed. I hope there is no one in there. It's just rubble," a worker at a nearby flea market said.

    Clouds of dark smoke could be seen for a three-block radius as hundreds of rescue officials descended on the scene.

    CNN first learned of this story via Twitter.

    Once a week some idiot blows himself up here making that hash oil/wax that Dave loves so much. They use butane to strip all of the THC out of the weed and forget to open a couple of windows, then they fire up the bong and boom. :jj:
