Big natural gas blast in Portland destroyed an historic building, many were injured


The blast broke his left femur and the tibia and fibula of his right leg. “I got thrown across the street, and I was tied up in a chain-link fence on the ground,” he said Thursday. “I tried to wiggle my toes because I couldn’t move my legs … Then I looked at my right leg, I knew it was broken at that point.” St. John don’t want to be considered an hero. He is a father of three. This was a major gas leak in the place at the explosion site..The gas was so thick the firefighters could see waves in the air. The building blew up in three blasts — one for each level— with a slight pause between each boom, St. John described. The intersections near the blast site were still closed Thursday.
