Baltimore fire officials reported a “major explosion” in the city Monday that has killed at least one person.

Shortly after, the union said in an update that three patients, all in critical condition, had been rescued by firefighters and a Special Rescue Operations unit was searching to rescue others. 

Around 10:30 a.m. the union said that one person was pronounced dead on scene and a third person is still trapped. 

The union said officials from Baltimore Gas and Electric, the Baltimore office of emergency management and the Baltimore County Fire Department were on scene assisting with the ongoing rescue operations.
