Explosion Rocks Moberly Business
KOMU has a crew on the scene and they sent us this picture on the right.
The building is still standing although there was extensive damage inside. Glenn's Garage Door company has been in business for 10 years.
KOMU talked to the owner of the garage, Glenn Smith, and he said the explosion sent the building's garage doors into nearby trees.
Smith's step-daughter and her husband live right near the building and actually felt the explosion. They say when they realized it was Glenn's business they quickly called him.
Smith said he was sick to his stomach once he saw what was left of the building. Police say they will keep watch over the building, but no one is in danger. The company was in business for 10 years and Smith says the clean up will start tomorrow.
Employees say they left the building during the early evening hours, but said they smelled no sign of a gas leak.
KOMU will have more details on the explosion as they become available.
