Suffolk County police say multiple people have been injured in the blast, which happened just before noon Tuesday in Brentwood.

Video footage from a News12 Long Island helicopter showed firefighters and police officers digging through a huge pile of rubble.

At least one person was pulled out on a stretcher and airlifted to a hospital.

Neighbors many blocks away reported feeling their own homes shake in the blast.

Further details aren't yet available.
