CINCINNATI - Kevin Malm lives in an apartment above the Jerusalem Restaurant and was home Sunday night when the front of the store exploded.
"I was just sitting watching TV, I heard this loud boom, then like a little shake like an earthquake type thing," Malm said. "I saw dust coming up through the floorboard. I thought our tub fell through the ceiling,"
Malm and his roommate quickly tried to escape.
"When we we came down the steps to leave, it was all dust. We couldn't see anything," Malm said. "That was kind of scary. We weren't sure if we could get out. We had to cover our eyes and move slowly down the stairs. We found the door and we got out."
The restaurant is owned by Aiman Arabeiat. His friend Bushar Albustami tells 9 News that Arabeiat was ready to go on a trip to Chicago to meet a new chef, but on his way he and his son stopped by the restaurant just after 9 p.m.
"When he was about to open the door, the father, who is the owner of the restaurant and his son was waiting outside in his truck, the explosion happened," Albustami said.

Did they serve pizza?
Hmmm, “work accident” or insurance fire gone bad?
...oh, no reason.
I wonder what the insurance policy is.
