Suspicious fire threatens homes in wallan street after explosion
The blast occurred at 4:39 p.m., about a block from a townhouse complex, where many homes were inside.
One woman who was living in the first unit, a unit adjacent to the bomb, saw fire and ran outside, she said. There was a lot of smoke and dust, but no one else inside, she said.
