    I posted this a few minutes ago in Facebook:

    A natural gas explosion just occurred at 213 N 85 st. near Greenwood Ave N and Palatine Ave N. There are firefighters missing.

    Two single story buildings impacted by the explosion. Police have been requested for traffic control.

    Firefighters were already on the scene when the explosion occurred. They had been dispatched for a natural gas leak.

    I was listening when I heard a female responder say “MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY!!!” I have never heard that. When a commander arrived and assumed command she sounded really rattled.

    They are now saying that the fire is not very large and that it is manageable. A public information officer has been requested.
