No One Hurt in NJ House Explosion

IRVINGTON, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities in New Jersey now believe everyone's accounted for after an explosion leveled two homes in Irvington.

The blast left one construction worker dead and four others injured.

Authorities are investigating whether the explosion was triggered by a gas line damaged during a break-in.

The blast destroyed a three-story home that was under construction and a vacant six-family house. The force of the blast scattered debris and shattered windows as far as four blocks away.

Rescue crews are still searching the rubble.
