  • Aliso Viejo blast: Mystery explosion kills woman in Orange County California

Late Tuesday afternoon, NBC4 - citing unnamed federal sources - said investigators had determined that the blast was an "intentional detonation", and the explosive device was delivered to the building, addressed to a specific person. No children were hurt, officials said. Investigators said they hadn't yet located an explosive device and were searching through debris.

Associated Press writer Michael Balsamo in Los Angeles contributed to this report. Aliso Viejo is about 50 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Mary McWilliams of San Clemente tells the Orange County Register that she saw two women with burns stagger out of the building. Two of the injured people had unknown injuries, and the third person suffered smoke-inhalation, according to officials.

Bomb squad investigators and FBI agents were looking into the cause of the blast Tuesday.

"Anytime you see an explosion of this magnitude, it would definitely be suspicious to us and that's why we rolled out all the resources to get to the bottom of it", he said.

Mary McWilliams told the Orange County Register she arrived for an appointment to find smoke surrounding the area and vehicle alarms going off. She and the three injured were likely in close proximity to the explosion, Sawyer said. All were taken to a hospital, she added.

Federal, state and local authorities, including the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, are investigating the blast, which occurred on the first floor of a building that was under renovation.

Authorities say they're trying to figure out whether the explosion was accidental or intentional.

The identity of the female victim who was killed, has yet to be released.

Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennesy said they received a call around 1:09 p.m.

The powerful blast blew out almost the entire bottom floor, officials said. The cause of the blast is being investigated. Still, they chose to evacuate a nearby day care and other surrounding businesses as a precaution.

The person who died was inside the building at the time of the blast, officials said.
