Orange County Fire Authority (OFCA) Chief Brian Fennessy detailed three other adults have been hospitalised following the horrific blast.

He said: “We are still trying to determine if this explosion was accidental or intentional.”

The explosion took place in the first floor of the building – it was reported at around 1.10pm local time (9.10pm GMT).

The FBI is responding to the incident.

The condition of those injured is unknown.

OFCA Captain Tony Bommarito declared the surrounding buildings in the area were evacuated as part of the desperate response to the explosion.

He added: “The plan right now is kind of a holding pattern.

“We’re basically going to our hazmat team and the bomb squad together, they’re going to form a plan, have a conversation, and see the best way to assess the situation before we start putting our guys inside.”
