(KING) Surveillance cameras captured the moments before and after an explosion leveled several businesses in North Bend, Washington last week. The explosion destroyed three buildings and damaged surrounding businesses early Friday morning.
"When I showed up it looked like a big bomb blast," said store clerk Mohammad Sheikh.
The gas station video shows insulation and dust particles flying through the air along with a small fire near the destroyed buildings. Inside the store, items were knocked off the shelves. The videos do not show the exact moment of the blast.
"The power was off and camera broke and everything shut down," said Sheikh.
