They’re saying now that they’re quite sure it’s tied to a gas related leak in a room that had a lot of equipment tied to the construction.
(This is all that’s on our local stations at the moment)
Harbor Drive is closed at the moment b/c of emergency vehicles, etc., but the trolley is running right by it and so they are obviously quite confident this is not something that’s going to be an ongoing issue and is confined to the specific area of the building that they’ve already identified.
4 people hospitalized at Scripps
9 hospitalized at UCSD
Padres game right ‘next door’ (more or less) to the construction area will go on as planned this evening (another sign this is all confined to the construction project and not some sort of ‘event’ or ‘threat’)
(The above all per KNSD 7/39/NBC)
You can see the water heaters in the room on the helicopter coverage. Probably a slow leak in one of the gas lines built up until it was ignited by the boiler next door.
