    "I heard an explosion, and it sounded like somebody ... like a whole level just flattened or something, and I thought somebody must've fell. Then, the alarm came on about 10 minutes later," Mitzi Osborne, who lives in the building, said.

    People were evacuated from the building, and Port Authority buses were brought in for them to use until they could return to their apartments.

    At least one person was brought out of the building on a stretcher.
