Multiple people have been injured following an explosion at a mall in Plantation, Florida.

According to CNN, 20 people have been hospitalized with two in critical condition after a gas explosion destroyed a section of the shopping center.

Fire officials reported that there were “multiple patients.” It is not clear if the mall was open at the time of the explosion.

Plantation police tweeted, “All stores and businesses in the area of the Fountains Plaza and the Plantation Marketplace plaza near LA Fitness will be shut down until further notice until Fire Personnel can determine that it is safe to return. Please do not come into this area if possible.”

Videos posted to social media showed windows that were shattered and debris scattered throughout the area and parking lot. Witnesses reported feeling their homes shake from several miles away and one nearby home had some of its windows blown out.

Police are currently investigating the cause.
