An explosion followed by a fire at a pair of apartment buildings in upper Manhattan on Wednesday has left two people dead and at least 18 injured, officials say.

According to ABC's New York affiliate, at least one of those injured experienced "heavy trauma." The conditions of the others were not immediately known.

The FDNY said it received a call shortly after 9:30 a.m. reporting a large explosion in the five-story apartment building on Park Avenue near 116th Street in East Harlem.

"This is a tragedy of the worst kind," Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference. "There was no indication in time to save people."
