According to reports, Kevin Sebunia of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania passed away following the tragic incident. Thoughts and prayers are with his friends, family and community during this difficult time.
I just heard that one of my fraternity brothers Kevin Sebunia was killed in the explosion in Plum last night. We were pledge brothers, had lived together in an apartment and were just plain goofs together. You just never know when it is your time. Damn proud brother.
On Saturday, a devastating house explosion occurred in Plum, a suburb of Pittsburgh, resulting in the tragic loss of five lives and numerous individuals sustaining injuries. The blast obliterated three buildings and inflicted damage on no less than twelve others, as confirmed by authorities. Remarkably, one individual, initially unaccounted for after the explosion, was regrettably among the five fatalities, as authorities disclosed on Sunday.
The identities of the victims have not been publicly divulged by the police at this time. However, it has been disclosed that one of the victims was an adolescent. Shortly before 10:30 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday, emergency services were alerted to a distress call reporting multiple residences ablaze due to an explosion. Emergency responders arrived at the scene to discover individuals trapped under debris, as communicated by Allegheny County officials.
Initially, four fatalities were confirmed by Allegheny County officials through their social media channels about the incident. Subsequently, during a press conference on Sunday, the fifth fatality was officially acknowledged. Additionally, three others were transported to hospitals, with two individuals in stable condition and one individual classified as critical. A total of 57 firefighters received on-site treatment for minor issues, primarily stemming from heat exhaustion.
Amie Downs, a spokesperson for the county, conveyed that emergency responders encountered individuals trapped under rubble following the detonation of one residence, while two others were consumed by flames. To extinguish the inferno, crews from at least 18 fire departments collaborated, assisted by water tankers from Allegheny and Westmoreland counties.
Officials present at the scene indicated that due to the uncertainty surrounding the occupants of the homes and potential visitors during the explosion, an exact tally of unaccounted-for individuals cannot be definitively provided. The names of those who lost their lives will be released by the county’s medical examiner’s office.
Investigations into the cause of the explosion are currently underway. Plum’s local and county law enforcement, along with the county fire marshal’s office, are jointly conducting the inquiry. The state public utilities commission and local utility entities were also involved at the scene. Notably, the investigative process is anticipated to be protracted, unfolding over months or even years, according to officials, as they underscored the intricacies of the investigation.
Kevin Sebunia obituary and funeral arrangements will be announced at a later date by the family.
