  • A still from surveillance cameras provided by Kennedy Chiropractic shows investigators as they probe an explosion at an Aliso Viejo building

The blast at the two-storey building in Aliso Viejo, south of Los Angeles, also injured two people.

But that information was also revised during the course of the investigation. Investigators said they hadn't yet located an explosive device and were searching through debris.

The officials were briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

While the office building has since been deemed safe, all businesses on Mareblu were closed Wednesday amid the ongoing investigation, according to a tweet from the city of Aliso Viejo. Officials said no children were injured.

Associated Press writer Michael Balsamo in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

At least one person was killed and three others injured as an explosion and fire tore through a medical building in Aliso Viejo, Orange County, at around 1.10 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.

The blast blew siding off the walls, exposing insulation and framing and shattering windows at the two-story building that houses medical offices.

Mary McWilliams told The Orange County Register that she arrived for an appointment to find smoke in the area and auto alarms going off.

Fire officials said a third person suffered smoke inhalation.

"There were police and fire officials from Orange County; the FBI; ATF and Homeland Security", Karson says.

Judge rejects Manafort attempt to dismiss criminal case
Manafort joined the Trump campaign in March 2016 and resigned that August amid news reports about his activities in Ukraine. The judge deemed that the indictment "falls squarely within that portion of the authority granted to the Special Counsel".

Two survivors had critical injuries "that were consistent with an explosion, but not necessarily consistent with a bomb", said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Dave Sawyer said Tuesday night that the size of the explosion makes it suspicious.

"We have not found any type of specific device inside of the building right now that would tell us or lead us to exactly what the device was - if there was a device", Sawyer said. Other people could be scene wheeling cribs down the street as the area was evacuated.

One woman, who had skin peeling on her arm from burns, said, "Take care of my mother", McWilliams said. The other woman was burned and her head was bleeding.

A federal official told The Associated Press late Tuesday that the explosion is believed to have been intentional and may have come from a package.

Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy says 70 firefighters were dispatched in response to a 1:09 p.m. Tuesday call from Aliso Viejo.

Authorities say they believe a woman killed in an explosion at a Southern California office building ran a day spa there.

Although the cause of the blast was still unknown, Bommarito told reporters Tuesday afternoon that there was "no immediate hazard" to the community.

Authorities say the dead woman had been inside the building.
