BREAKING NEWS: Fox News is reporting and confirmed a large explosion, possible terrorist attack, in the Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan.

Police counter-terrorism officers, a bomb squad and firefighters rushed to the scene and sources told Fox News investigators have not ruled out terrorism as a possible factor but that it was too early to determine the exact cause.

A Twitter user stated, “Outside our apartment at 23rd and 6th in #newyork. Terrified. Hoping everyone is okay.”

The New York Post reported that a dumpster blew up at 8:40 p.m. Saturday night in Chelsea, blowing out the lower windows of a 14-story residence for the blind.

UPDATE: Fox News is now reporting that 29 injured and it was “intentional,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced, as sources told Fox News an apparent explosive device — a pressure cooker — was found four blocks away.
