Updated:LANCASTER CO. —
Channel 9 is getting a better idea about the minutes following an explosion that leveled a Lancaster home.
A few of the 911 calls made to dispatch were released to us. Officials said they had 83 calls in a matter of 30 minutes about the explosion, which meant some callers could not get through immediately.
Caller: “Yes, I'm calling. I think we had a bomb over here and I've been calling 283-3311, ain't that the police department?”
Dispatch: “Yes ma’am. We’re just getting so many calls. We felt it everywhere. We felt it over here as well.”
Several homes were damaged. Lancaster firefighters are still waiting to see what the investigation turns up, but investigators think it was a natural gas explosion.
