MEXICO CITY -- Last week's deadly blast in a Mexico City skyscraper was caused by a build of up gas, according to the Mexican government.
During a news conference last night, Mexico's attorney general said there were no traces of explosives at the scene of the blast.
The explosion killed 37 people, 29 are still hospitalized with injuries related to Thursday's explosion.
The attorney general said gas may have leaked from containers in a storage facility connected to where the explosion took place near a tunnel.
Another theory is it could have leaked from an aging pipeline that passed through the building.
