Apparent gas explosion levels southern New Jersey building

PENNSVILLE, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say an apparent gas explosion leveled a building in southern New Jersey, but no injuries were reported.

The explosion in Pennsville was reported around 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say a construction crew working in the 100 block of North Broadway apparently struck a main, and the gas quickly built up in the basement. The explosion occurred a short time later.

The building housed a law office and an apartment. The person who lives in the apartment was not home when the explosion occurred.
