Investigators and officials have evidence to declare the explosion in Port Washington as planned and not by accident.

It is believed that flammable liquids were used in creating the fire that led to an explosion.

One person was killed and five firefighters were injured after last night after authorities were called to the home about a domestic dispute.

More than 150 firefighters responded to the scene at 10 Prospect Avenue after 8 p.m.  The explosion was heard throughout the neighborhood and three other homes were also damaged.

A gas odor was reported just before the blast and a woman and a 2 year old girl escaped the scene just in time.  Firefighters found a body inside the home once the fire was extinguished.

Authorities are investigating the cause.
