The blast at the two-storey building in Aliso Viejo, south of Los Angeles, also injured two people.

The explosion blew siding off the walls, exposing insulation and framing.

A federal official told The Associated Press late Tuesday that the explosion is believed to have been intentional and may have come from a package.

Officials didn't consider the explosion suspicious and they found no explosive devices.

A daycare and preschool are near the site of the explosion, but authorities said all of the children are safe.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to the incident.

The powerful blast blew out almost the entire bottom floor, officials said.

Carrie Braun, an Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman, said authorities were working to determine if the explosion was an accident or an intentional act, the newspaper reported. She and the three injured were likely in close proximity to the explosion, Sawyer said.

FBI spokesman Mike Gifford said the cause of the explosion is still unknown and the agency has sent resources to help with the investigation, which is being led by Orange County Sheriff's Department.

According to police, the explosion was a "deliberate detonation" - an explosive device was taken into the building and addressed to a specific person.

A woman who was on her way to an appointment in the area told CBS2 she arrived just after the blast occurred, and she saw fire on the roof of the building.

There are unconfirmed reports of explosive devices on the scene of the blast in Orange County.

"Take care of my mother, take care of my mother!" shouted one woman as she fled, according to NBC4.

Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy says 70 firefighters were dispatched in response to a 1:09 p.m. Tuesday call from Aliso Viejo. The other woman was bleeding from her head.

Authorities say one person is dead and two others have injuries after an explosion rocked a Southern California office building.
