More than six hours after the explosion, law-enforcement officials were still pulling injured people from homes, Waco Police Sgt. William Patrick Swanton said at a press conference at 2:15 a.m. local time. The authorities didn’t yet know whether the fire and subsequent blast were an accident or intentional, Swanton said, according to the Associated Press.
