EAST HARLEM - A pastor from a Bronx church is in East Harlem to assist people affected by the gas explosion that leveled two buildings yesterday.

Pastor Bill Devlin, from the Infinity Bible Church on East 147th Street, says he knew he had to do something when he saw what happened. He especially felt compelled to help because he knows the pastor of the Spanish Christian Church of East Harlem, which was destroyed in the explosion.

Devlin has been stationed at the Red Cross Center on 125th Street, offering his support to victims.

"They're broken," says Devlin. "They either lost all of their possessions or they've lost a loved one, so we want to come today from the Bronx just to let them know that pastors in the Bronx are here for them and we are with them and we will do whatever we can to help them."
