It's been a year since a massive explosion and fire at an apartment complex in Montgomery County.

Seven people including two children died at the Flower Branch Apartments in Silver Spring. Dozens more were hurt and about 100 people were displaced. A natural gas leak caused the explosion.

Thursday night at 7:30 p.m., CASA will hold a vigil in memory of the victims.
