The blast came with a roar that nearby residents said sounded like a naval gun. It knocked out a wall section and cracked other walls. The injured man, Smith Alvin, Negro janitor, was in the basement when the explosion occurred and suffered severe burns. Doors and windows were blown out. It is believed that blast came from gas from a furnace."
