Police officers who worked to evacuate 2nd Avenue in Nashville, Tenn., on Christmas morning, in the minutes prior to the explosion of a motor home, recounted what they saw and heard leading up to the massive blast.
The motor home, parked on a downtown street of Tennessee’s largest city, exploded at dawn moments after police responding to reports of gunfire noticed it and heard an automated message emanating from it warning of a bomb. The thunderous, fiery blast destroyed several vehicles, damaged more than 40 businesses and left a trail of shards from shattered windows.
The vehicle was parked outside an AT&T Inc office, and the blast caused widespread telephone, internet and TV service outages in central Tennessee and parts of several neighbouring states, including Mississippi, Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia.
