Massachusetts gas explosions update

Thousands of people are still displaced following a series of deadly gas explosions in three Massachusetts towns north of Boston.

Dozens of homes and businesses were burned or damaged in the pipeline explosions that killed 18-year-old Leo Rondon and injured 25 others.

Governor Charlie Baker has declared a state of emergency, handing over control to New England's largest power company and federal investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board.  Officials say that there is no evidence of anything intentional or nefarious about the gas explosions. 

No word yet on when people can return to their homes.  Shelters have been set up for those displaced residents until authorities determine it's safe for them to go back.
