Mayor John Cooper said the Friday blast was caused by a "deliberate bomb" in a motor home that went off. Three people sustained non-threatening injuries but no deaths were reported.
Several buildings were damaged and some residents were displaced. One building collapsed from the explosion, officials said. Cooper issued a 48-hour curfew for the affected area started at 4:30 p.m.
He said it would take time to rebuild and that it would be sometime before things get back to normal.
