    I can't find any links online yet, but there was an explosion and a potential building collapse near the Metro North tracks up around 114th -116th Street and Park Ave. in New York.

    There are a lot of fire fighters there, and it looks like there is a lot of smoke around the area.

    I have no idea if it is a big deal yet, but it is breaking. They have cancelled Metro North trains heading north from Grand Central Station.

    I still get chills whenever I see anything like this.

    Heavy.com has a few links, calling it a 3-alarm fire.

    CNN reporting Con Ed was called to the area moments before for a gas leak.

    It's a block or two north of the Taft housing project on a dilapidated /not yet gentrified block. The Metro-North tracks can't be much more than a couple hundred feet away from the building, if that.

    Two dead and 15 injured. This gives you an idea how close it is to the Metro-North tracks.
