PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The owner of a building damaged in a natural gas explosion last week says she plans to repair the building as quickly as possible.

Ann Sacks owns the four-story building that houses Dosha Salon Spa at 2281 NW Glisan St., just east of where Portland Bagelworks used to stand.

Sacks said she applied for a demolition permit in order to remove damage to the building's exterior and interior but planned to retain as much of the structure as possible.

The building suffered extensive damage when a natural gas leak inside Portland Bagelworks ignited Oct. 19, causing an explosion.

A spokesperson for NW Natural said a contractor hit a gas line at a work site across the street.

Eight people, including three firefighters and two police officers, were injured in the blast.

Investigators have not identified what caused the leaking gas to ignite.
