Building explodes in NYC’s East Village 
Construction workers accidentally “hit a gas main” that fueled an explosion and massive fire that burned four East Village buildings on Thursday, collapsing one and leaving another in danger of falling down, sources told The Post. At least 12 people were injured — three critically — but there were no immediate fatalities and no reports of anyone missing in the ruins, Mayor de Blasio said. The blast, first reported to 911 at 3:17 p.m., was heard blocks away and acrid smoke from the blaze billowed north across Manhattan, where it could be smelled even inside office towers in Midtown.
