Building explodes in Oregon, injuring

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Three firefighters and two civilians were injured in a reported explosion in northwest Portland, Oregon.

According to KOIN News, the gas incident happened around 9 a.m. Wednesday, near the intersection of NW 23rd Avenue and Glisan Street.

Utility company NW Natural said that a contractor digging in the area struck a gas line, causing damage. However, it was not immediately clear what caused the leaked gas to ignite.

Kimberly Johnson, the COO of Dosha Salon Spa, told KOIN that the salon was evacuated before the explosion happened and all of her employees were safe.

2. I hope those injured will heal quickly. Fire Fighters evacuated people just in time!

They're heroes in my book.
