Seventh deceased victim found in rubble at Flower Branch explosion site in Silver Spring

More tragic news from the site of the horrific August 10 explosion and fire at the Flower Branch Apartments in Silver Spring: a seventh deceased victim was found inside the collapsed building on Tuesday. Montgomery County Police have not yet made public the names of the victims. The fact that seven residents were known to be missing after the explosion suggests the recovery operation may be nearing its end. However, the search continues today, to ensure that any unknown victims are found.

The investigation continues, as well. Federal authorities may have a preliminary conclusion about the explosion's cause before the week ends. Therapy dogs have been brought in from Frederick County to help residents traumatized by the tragedy, the Frederick News-Post reported late last night.
