A witness describes seeing two women with burns following an explosion that killed one person and injured three at a Southern California medical office building. The scene was declared a second-alarm fire and a hazmat situation.

Sheriff's deputies snapped photos of vehicles that were leaving the scene throughout the afternoon.

"We have not found any type of specific device inside of the building right now that would tell us or lead us to exactly what the device was - if there was a device", Orange County sheriff's Cmdr.

Officials originally believed the explosion was caused by a vehicle crashing into the building, but Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun said no auto was involved and the department was investigating how the explosion occurred. They had not released her name as of late Tuesday night. Dave Sawyer, however, told reporters at an early evening briefing that investigators "don't know if it was an intentional detonation of a device".

Sheriff's officials said the size of blast made it suspicious. The extent of the injuries was not immediately known.

Parents whose children were evacuated can reunite with them at the parking of the Target on La Paz Road, OCFA tweeted. Other people could be scene wheeling cribs down the street as the area was evacuated.

The blast occurred at an office building at around 1.25pm local time (9.25pm BST).

"Then everyone started running out of buildings everywhere with looks on their faces of just horror", the woman said.

McWilliams says she saw two women covered in ash and soot stagger out of the building. Their skin was burned and peeled back, and they were just in shock.
