Authorities have yet to identify a woman who was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after the blast. The exact cause of the explosion is still unknown and is being investigated.

Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young spoke during a Tuesday morning news briefing and said the devastation was so extensive he didn’t know how to describe it.

“I’m just asking the community at large, the city, to come together in prayer,” he said.

Fox 45 Baltimore interviewed a woman who said she was rescued by neighbors after being trapped in the rubble. She suffered no injuries.
