EWING, N.J. -- Authorities said one resident was killed in an explosion in a New Jersey housing development that also injured seven workers.

Police said the blast happened Tuesday after a gas line was damaged by contractors who were digging in the area. At least one town home was destroyed in the Trenton suburb of Ewing and 55 others damaged.

The person who was killed was found outside the home that blew up, but authorities don't know whether the victim lived there. No other details were given.
