City fire officials tweeted that the scene was “under control” not longer after arriving, revealing there had been no injuries discovered yet and all hazards in the area had been contained.

Images from the explosion show huge clouds of smoke rising up out of the scene.

The shockwaves also caused local damage, with some nearby buildings photographed with their windows shattered.

Hazmat crews, special rescue teams, and fireboats all responded to the industrial area after reports of the blast. Baltimore City Councilwoman Phylicia Porter tweeted that she was working with Mayor Brandon Scott to address the situation “as swiftly and safely as possible.”

City residents have been warned by authorities to stay clear of the area as they conduct their investigation.

Adams insisted, however, that there is “no impact or risk to the community
