ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Officials have released the name of the man who died in a house explosion in Elizabeth.

Police say 24-year-old Femi Brown lived on the second floor of the duplex that was leveled “like a pancake” in Wednesday’s blast. There is no word on the cause of death.

Two people, including an 11-year-old, remain in critical condition with burns.

City spokeswoman Kelly Vence on Thursday says officials have not yet determined what triggered the explosion. Mayor Chris Bollwage on Wednesday said gas was believed responsible.

In all, 14 people were taken to hospitals.
