Gas Leak Ignites; Shopping Mall Crumbles

- Two of the nine injured are in serious condition
- Officials say the structure was decades old
- Fire is contained and clean up has begun

An explosion possibly caused by a gas leak ripped through a suburban Chicago shopping plaza Thursday, injuring nine people and rattling nearby buildings, fire officials said. 

Of the nine injured, two are in serious condition at a local hospital, Deputy Fire Chief Dan Young Said. Injuries range from smoke inhalation, bumps and bruises. 

The shopping center is located about 40 miles north of Chicago. The explosion ignited around lunchtime, leading to a subsequent fire and the collapsing of the roof.

Officials say they are looking for one person who is still unaccounted for, but they are "99.9 per cent" sure everyone is out of the rubble. 

Fire crews are still at the scene cleaning up the rubble.

UPDATE: Illinois Blast Injuries Up To 9

-More people found injured
-Gas leak is said to be probable cause

At least 9 people are said to be injured by the blast in a Waukegan, Illinois shopping plaza. Emergency crews are looking to see if more people are trapped in the debris of the roof that collapsed.  

The Waukegan Fire Chief says it is suspected, but not yet confirmed, that a leaking gas pipe is to blame for the blast. A People's Gas spokesman says they have turned off all gas pipes in the surrounding area. 

Candie Rixie says she working at Leno's Submarine shop a block away, when she heard the loud noise. 

"We felt like an earthquake, like somebody had hit the building with a car," she said. 

Emergency crews are still on the scene cleaning up the rubble and looking for more clues.
