Early morning explosions rocked an LPG distribution station in a densely populated neighborhood of the Dominican Republic's capital Tuesday, destroying several homes and injuring at least 40 people, officials said.A second explosion occurred about 40 minutes later, leveling a three-story building owned by Eleno Olivares. He lived in the building with his wife, six children and one young grandchild, and he rented the other units to a dozen other people who also made it out safely except for one who was burned when he tried to rescue some belongings.Authorities have evacuated the area to inspect buildings for safety and determine what caused the explosion.
