Police Sgt. John Delaney marveled at the destruction at the blast's epicenter, where a multistory building was leveled.
"It looks like there was a missile strike here," he said.
Firefighters responded to the scene at 4:20 p.m. and were investigating the gas leak when the blast happened shortly after 5 p.m. The cause of the explosion hadn't been identified but was under investigation, they said.
What do you want to bet the FBI and NTSB cover-up this drone attack the same way they did San Bruno! They'll claim it was a faulty weld in a pipeline, and inform the public they're gonna have to pay millions of dollars to upgrade the pipelines.
"The explosion, in an area of downtown Springfield with commercial properties and residences, destroyed a building that housed a Scores Gentlemen's Club."
Gee, is the Gentlemen's Club in Chicago a homosexual club for men,
which Rahm Emmanuel and Obama are life members of and have frequented in the past? I wonder if the club was blown-up to cover some higher up perversions? Inquiring minds want to know!
