A natural gas explosion rocked downtown Springfield, Mass., late Friday afternoon, leveling one building and shattering windows in others in a three block radius.

An apartment building about a block away from the area of a gas explosion that leveled a strip club is seen Saturday in Springfield, Mass. Investigators are trying to figure out what caused the Friday blast that could be heard for miles, and that left a large hole in the ground where the multistory brick building housing Scores Gentleman's Club once stood.
