Palisades woman owns building that exploded in East Village
The owner of a building that exploded in the East Village last week is a Rockland County woman.
Investigators entered Maria Hrynenko's Justin Court home in Palisades, and removed bags of what appeared to be shredded papers into a truck.
Video of the removal was captured Monday by the Daily News outside the landlord's home.
It's unclear exactly what was in the bags that were taken from the home, and whether they had anything to do with the building or explosion.
The blast killed two people, injured nearly two dozen others and leveled three buildings.
The cause of the blast hasn't been determined, although Mayor Bill de Blasio says someone may have improperly tapped a gas line before the explosion.
He says three out of the four people critically injured in the fire are out of the hospital, and that the remaining patient is doing well.
