At least 21 injured in explosion at downtown Baltimore office building

At least 21 people were injured in an explosion Wednesday at a downtown Baltimore office building, according to local CBS affiliate WJZ-TV.

The Baltimore City Fire Department responded to the scene promptly after an explosion and partial roof collapse was reported just before 8:30 a.m. at the Baltimore Gas & Electric building with more than 20 victims trapped inside.

Twenty-three people were rescued from the building and 21 were taken to the hospital for treatment. Two of the victims declined medical aid, though nine are in critical condition and one is in serious condition, the local outlet reported.

No deaths have been reported, according to a statement sent to WJZ from Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott's (D) office.

2. Oh my gosh...

According to the article, some of the victims were cleaning windows at the time and clung to the remains of a scaffolding for 30 minutes while awaiting rescue.

Talk about anxiety!

What a Christmas for everyone involved
