Two Dead, 31 Injured in HUGE Explosion at Maryland Apartment Complex

Authorities said at lunchtime press conference they were still working to identify the dead and uncover the cause of the huge explosion overnight, which tore through the Flower Branch Apartments displacing more than 90 residents.

“Firefighters were met with heavy fire conditions and multiple rescues to be made,” said David Steckel, division chief of the Montgomery County Fire Department during the news conference.

Firefighters continued to search for “some” missing residents of the Piney Branch Road apartments on Thursday afternoon, but backed off figures released earlier that five to seven people were still unaccounted for.

Montgomery County executive Isiah Leggett said, “Our heart goes out to those affected.”
