The blast — at Green Street and the White Horse Pike — took place when a third-floor tenant ignited her stove after a gas leak from the second floor caused natural gas to collect on the third floor, according to media reports.

Rachel M. Nunn, 26, sustained burns on more than  60 percent of her body, according to Philly.com. She was listed in critical condition Sunday at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Delaware County.

The other victim suffered minor injuries.
