At least five people, including three students from James Ames Madison University, were injured in a fire explosion in the center of Varita, Harrisburg, on Saturday morning.
Harrisonburg city spokesman Mike Parks told The Washington Post that police received multiple reports Saturday at 8 a.m. Around 30, an explosion took place in a building a few miles west of Madison University.
Parks told CNN that three firefighters had set fire to at least two other commercial buildings in the city, about 54 miles northwest of Charlottesville.
Videos about the fire were quickly uploaded on Twitter by Josh Edmonds, a local resident, told CNN via Twitter that even while he was working miles away, “his whole building was shaken, some of my colleagues were shaking in their cars when the explosion happened.”
