VIDEO: The Latest On The East Harlem Explosion

A huge explosion in NYC’s East Harlem neighborhood happened Wednesday morning, prompting two five-story buildings to partially collapse. Authorities gathered at the scene at 1644 Park Ave. between 116th and 117th streets, and Metro-North train routes were suspended, because debris from the explosion fell onto the tracks. The explosion was caused by a gas leak, which left the five-story buildings in a three-story pile of rubble. By Thursday night, about 50 percent of the debris had been removed, with smoke still billowing as firefighters moved through the rubble.
