A loud explosion is reported in New York City’s Chelsea district on Saturday night. Firefighters are now rushing to the scene after the outdoor explosion occurred at 132 23rd Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues in New York City, according to multiple media reports. So far, no information about casualty and the cause of explosion is available.

A dumpster blew up at 8:30 p.m. Saturday night in Chelsea, blowing out the lower windows of a 14-story residence for the blind. At least fifteen suffered minor injuries from what may have been an explosive device, police sources told The Post. The explosion, described by one neighbor as “deafening,” happened outside the Associated Blind Housing facility at 135 W. 23rd Street. The facility provides housing, training and other services for the blind.
