Neighbors said Krajnyak-Vestil worked as an aesthetician at the medical office building on 11 Mareblu, where the blast occurred Tuesday. The neighbor said Krajnyak was her mother's caretaker and describes the husband as a massage therapist and nice man.

Orange County first responders investigate the scene of an explosion in Aliso Viejo, Calif., on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.

In the early morning hours Wednesday, FBI investigators began searching a home in Trabuco Canyon were Krajnyak was believed to have been living with her estranged husband.

They believe the victim was in close proximity to the explosion, while the three others who were injured were likely near her at the time.

Nothing indicates there were any threats made before the blast, which appeared to be concentrated in a suite on the first floor of the office building, Sawyer said.

Surrounding areas, including a nearby preschool, were evacuated.

The deadly explosion that killed one woman and injured three others at an office building in the US state of California was not an accident, said authorities on Wednesday.

"We have not found any type of specific device inside of the building right now that could tell us or lead us to what exactly the device was, if it was a device", Commander Dave Sawyer of the Orange County Sheriff's Department said at a press conference.

The officials say there have been no arrests.

"At this point, we do not believe this was an accident".

Authorities initially responded to the building at 1:10 p.m. Tuesday on a report that a auto had crashed into the building, but Orange County Fire Authority Capt.

The officials were briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to AP on condition of anonymity.

Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes said the formal identification of the body is continuing Wednesday but authorities believe the victim is Ildiko Krajnyak, a 40-year-old licensed cosmetologist.

The two patrons who were injured were undergoing surgery Wednesday and expected to survive. The three people who were injured were nearby and were being questioned by investigators late Tuesday night, he said.

The Los Angeles Times, citing two law enforcement sources, reported that investigators believed it may have been caused by a package.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosions continued to investigate.

A US official briefed on the investigation, speaking on condition of not being identified by name, told The Associated Press the explosion is being investigated as intentional and investigators believe the blast may have come from a package.

Barnes said authorities found the victim dead at the scene, as well as two injured individuals who are now at the hospital and are expected to survive.

The Tuesday afternoon blast occurred in Aliso Viejo, which is about 50 miles south of Los Angeles.

The blast blew siding off the walls, exposing insulation and framing and shattering windows at the two-story building that houses medical offices.

Shin said it felt like "a big natural disaster", and as he and others rushed downstairs to get out of the nearby building, he saw two holes in the wall of the medical facility. A third victim suffered from smoke inhalation at the scene and received medical care before being released, he said. The blast involved a building under renovation but the cause was not immediately known, according to authorities.

There's no word yet on a motive for the explosion.
