ATLANTA - A worker was injured following an explosion at a thrift store in southeast Atlanta on Tuesday, police said.
A witness told Channel 2's Dave Huddleston they saw smoke billowing from the store immediately after the explosion Tuesday afternoon.
Young said Atlanta police and fire departments swarmed the store and shut down Memorial Drive for several hours.
A fleet of FBI vehicles arrived at the scene about two hours after the explosion. The GBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Homeland Security also participated in the investigation.
A police spokesman said the explosion was not a bomb, but rather some sort of flash fire. The worker sustained minor injuries, officials said. He is in stable condition.
