The apartment complex looked unrecognizable as the CBS46 team headed back to Dunwoody Monday morning to observe the scene of the residential area that once stood tall. 

Many displaced residents, some of who are waking up in hotels, say they don't know when they'll be able to come back home. 

"All I heard was a big bang," said one resident. 

"I thought a car ran into the building. I really had no clue until I stepped out and saw fire." added another resident.

Three housing units were impacted by the explosion leaving four people injured and several more without access to their home. The four injured are reportedly 'doing okay.'

Dekalb County fire officials are working around the clock to confirm the cause of the explosion. Residents say there was a smell of gas and the fire department confirmed a call was made about the odor.
