Loud explosion rattles apartment complex

Albany- Firefighters were called to the Shackleford Apartments on Pine Avenue when residents heard a very loud noise.

They observed that one apartment's window was blown out.  Inside, the kitchen cabinets flew off the hinges.  Water, Gas, and Light couldn't detect any gas leaks in any of the apartments. Luckily no one was home at the time.

 "About 2:30 p.m. we heard a loud boom, thought it was thunder but we came out and looked and didn't see anything. I actually drove off and came back home and when I came back that's when I saw the fire department here," says Shackleford resident Lamar Daniels.

Firefighters still aren't able to pinpoint what caused the explosion but they say a gas leak is most likely the cause. The resident of the apartment has been notified.
