Nine hurt as gas explosion levels Denver building

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - First responders rescued two victims trapped inside the building, described as a "fourplex," in Denver's historic Baker neighborhood, said Denver Fire Captain Greg Pixley.

No one else was believed trapped in the rubble, Pixley said, but firefighters were making sure the structure was stable before conducting a thorough search.

Fire crews were working with Xcel Energy Inc, the Denver utility that supplied the building, to ensure all gas was eliminated from the area, Pixley said.
