About 168 police and fire officials in NYC are responding to an explosion at an occupied building on 116th Street and Park Avenue in Manhattan that happened at 9:13am this morning.

The cause of the explosion was a gas leak that had been reported to ConEd 15 minutes earlier.

The explosion happened at 1644-1646 Park Avenue. ConEd recieved calls about a heavy gas odor 15 minutes prior and sent two trucks to the building. They arrived just before the explosion, which caused a 5-alarm fire and the building to collapse.

The FDNY was on the scene 2 minutes later.

The New York Times reports at least two people are dead. A senior city official suggested that there would most likely be more fatalities. As of 12pm, there were 18 injuries being treated on the scene.
