COLUMBIA. Md. (WCJB)-- A powerful natural gas explosion badly damaged a Maryland office complex and shopping center Sunday morning.
No injuries were reported in the thundering blast, which occurred at about 8 a.m. It came after authorities said they had evacuated the area around the complex because of a suspected early morning gas leak near the complex in Columbia, Maryland.
Columbia is about 20 miles southwest of Baltimore, Maryland, in a populous area between Baltimore and D.C.
