At least five people are critically injured in a two-alarm fire and explosion has engulfed a high rise apartment building in Silver Spring.

Pete Piringer, public information officer for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services, said firefighters were called to the scene at 2423 Lyttonsville Road near Michigan Avenue for a reported fire and explosion.

Piringer said between 10 and 12 people were taken to the hospital for treatment of their injuries and some people refused treatment at the hospital.

While firefighters are still on scene and there is still work to do, it appears everyone has been accounted for.
