At least one cylinder landed on a nearby home. Nearby streets were strewn with cylinders and debris. At least one car was damaged.
Three people were hospitalized with injuries, firefighters said. Details about their conditions were not immediately available.
"They're compressed gas cylinders, and with that comes the potential for hazardous materials as well as future explosions," said Montclair Fire Battalion Chief Ryan Dierck.
