East 125th Street Explosion (WTAM)

(Cuyahoga County) - East Cleveland firefighters are treating this past weekend's deadly house explosion as a crime.  

A five-thousand-dollar reward is available for critical information about the blast Sunday on East 125th Street.  

One woman was killed, a man suffered burns and several neighboring homes were damaged, and another person of interest is being questioned.

Meanwhile, charges are pending against a suspect. 

Christopher Glenn was arrested yesterday.  Glenn is accused of working with a group that was tearing the East 125th Street house apart for metal scraps, causing a gas leak that fueled the explosion. 

The blast killed one apparent member of Glenn's crew, critically injured another and damaged dozens of nearby homes, causing the Northern Ohio Red Cross to open an emergency shelter in the neighborhood.
