About the Fountains Plaza Explosion
The apparent gas explosion originated at a vacant pizza restaurant within the Fountains Plaza in Plantation, FL, on July 6, 2019, at around 11:30 a.m. The explosion destroyed much of the building, sent debris into the air, and blew windows out of nearby shops including a nearby L.A. Fitness.
Initial reports indicate at least 20 people were injured, including two seriously. Several patients were taken to Broward Health Medical Center.
Witnesses stated they felt the explosion up to a mile and a half away. While many reports speculate that a gas leak caused the explosion, and authorities found ruptured gas lines in the rubble, early reports had not yet identified a cause of the blast.

We will gather all the necessary evidence to prove each of these four points. We can secure evidence such as:
- Surveillance video
