The cause of the blast remained a mystery for much of the day, with officials initially believing a vehicle had smashed into the building. "Investigation is in early stages, as information is confirmed we will share it".

Fire and sheriff's officials said the building appeared to be undergoing some type of renovation.

Dave Sawyer says authorities haven't determined whether the explosion was accidental or intentional.

Bommarito could not immediately confirm if a vehicle may have also crashed into the building.

He also said that the police finds out causes of the explosion. The three people who were injured were nearby and were being questioned by investigators late Tuesday night, he said. Investigators are interviewing the three injured.

The county's bomb squad and a hazmat team are preparing to search the building where the explosion occurred.

"This is going to be a slow process", Bommarito said.

At this point, officials are not ruling anything out.

Orange County sheriff's experts along with FBI, the ATF and other federal agencies are investigating the cause of the blast.

Sheriff's officials said the size of blast made it suspicious. And there is no specific person that authorities are searching for right now, he added.

Authorities initially indicated a auto had crashed into the building, but Bommarito said later that did not appear to be the case.

However, Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun said no auto was involved in the explosion and there is an investigation to find out what caused it, according to NBC.

Firefighters responded to a call of an explosion shortly after 1 p.m. local time.

Authorities will not enter the building until they "deem it safe", he said.

He said it felt "almost like an natural disaster, but a big quake". It blew siding off the walls, exposing insulation and framing and shattering windows at the two-story building that houses medical offices.

Fire officials said a third person suffered smoke inhalation.
