      An explosion that size, I’d imagine there might be some damage to the houses directly next to it,” said city spokesman Dan Bell.
        Reina Jimenez, who lives close to the explosion area, told CNN there were at least three explosions.
          The first explosion was like an earthquake or like something fell outside near us,” Jimenez said. “The second explosion was bigger and louder. It shook the whole houseMy husband started filming when the third explosion went off. It was also really big and loud and shook the house again. We were worried the explosion would reach the house so we started getting the kids ready to leave.

          One additional minor injury was reported, the fire official said. The explosion is under investigation.
          Evacuations were ordered for at least three streets in the neighborhood and fire officials warned residents to stay away from the area.
