A massive explosion tonight in Allentown was heard as far away as West Bethlehem and Northampton, authorities and a resident say.  

Lehigh County 911 dispatch said the explosion occurred at a home in the area of 14th and Allen streets. A dispatcher had no further information available because Allentown handles its own dispatch. A call to Allentown 911’s non-emergency line went unanswered. 
  
Emergency radio broadcasts described the call as an “MCI,” or mass casualty incident.
