A loud explosion was recorded in the Southern City of Nashville, Tennessee.
U.S. investigators believe the explosion in downtown Nashville on Friday may have been an "intentional act," according to city police department spokesman Don Aaron. Buildings in the immediate area and beyond were shaken by an explosion heard early in the morning. Nearby streets were closed as investigations continue.
Metro Nashville's Office of Emergency Management told Nashville television station WKRN that a parked recreational vehicle exploded, causing damage to several buildings. So far, only three people were reported injured and police have said that human remains have been found in the area of the explosion. Local police have closed access to the downtown area and are being assisted by agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
