Explosion rocks fitness center in Florida mall

Emergency personnel are investigating an explosion at a shopping center in Plantation, Florida on Saturday that caused multiple injuries.

A Plantation Fire Rescue spokesman said because it was a gas explosion there were no flames.

WPLG reports a triage area has been set up.

Gordon said at a news conference that everyone has been accounted for.

Photos on U.S. news outlets showed a large field of debris outside the shopping center in the town of Plantation in south Florida. A section of the complex appeared to sustain significant damage, with shattered windows and scattered debris.

"A bomb just went off", a man says in a video sent to the station.

Chopper4 over the scene spotted the windows blown at the LA Fitness in the plaza. Plantation Fire Rescue confirmed on Twitter that there are multiple patients.

The owner said their business is closed for the holiday weekend so luckily there were no children inside learning how to code.
