Baltimore fire officials released more information Wednesday about the victims in Monday's explosion in northwest Baltimore.
Just before 10 a.m., fire crews responded to the 4200 block of Labyrinth Road and began clearing debris and rubble once they learned people may have been in the three destroyed homes at the time.
Fire officials said they recovered the body of 61-year-old Lonnie Herriott just before noon Monday and 20-year-old Joseph Graham Jr., previously identified by his family, early Tuesday.
They rescued seven victims. Three people remain hospitalized: a 34-year-old man in critical condition, a 20-year-old man in stable condition and a 65-year-old man in stable condition. A 27-year-old woman, a 37-year-old woman, a 64-year-old man and a 93-year-old man have been discharged.
“During this horrific event, the City of Baltimore has come together as one community and shown deliberate and action driven compassion for those impacted by this incident,” Fire Chief Niles R. Ford said in a statement. “The explosion was devastating, and our hearts and prayers go out to the families of the deceased and injured, as well as those that have been displaced from their homes."
