An explosion and large fire at a shopping centre in the US state of Virginia has injured several people.
Three people were hospitalised as a result of the incident in Harrisonburg on Saturday morning local time, the Daily News-Record reported.
Several others were injured but were treated on site.
City spokesman Mike Parks told the newspaper a search of the remains of the building had not turned up any other victims.
Governor Ralph Northam tweeted that state emergency personnel had been deployed to the area after what he called a gas explosion.
But Harrisonburg Fire Chief Matt Tobia told reporters the cause was under investigation.
The fire has since been contained.
