Multiple 911 phone calls to LAPD from neighbors who dialed 911 pleading for help.
"There was a big explosion across the street and people could be dead, help us"! The neighbors all pulled together to see if they could search for survivors. They went door to door on Sale Ave calling out to their neighbors, "Anyone home" hello?" Do you need help?
It was a humane type of neighborhood and they really stuck it out for one another. One neighbor was telling news media she was all over the house that blew up. The minute it happened, it shook her in a fearsome way. She ran across the street in fear, towards what she might find. Hero in her heart, she was not being a hero, she was being a human.
UPDATE: As of Thursday September 21, 2017 Police have ruled that this is NOT a criminal investigation any longer. They said it was natural gas, or possibly had to do with the gas company.
The next day, Thursday September 21, 2017 morning 10:00am the street out front was packed with news vans, trucks , the press and tv news camera live coverage rolling satellite to the Tv stations all over LA. Reporters were crawling the backyards gathering their news and recording briefs for live coverage as we gathered these images for our millions of viewer online.
