Explosion Rocks Georgia Strip Mall

An explosion and massive fire damaged half-a-dozen businesses at a DeKalb County strip mall early Monday morning.

The blast at the mall on Memorial Dr. was so powerful it shattered car windows for blocks and sent a rain of building insulation falling on the area.

"It all happened within 30 seconds," said one witness. Fire quickly spread to the storefront businesses in the mall. Early word is that no one was injured in the explosion or the fire.

Firefighters have not been able to determine the cause of the blast.
