The Nashville explosion that rocked downtown sent shards of glass and rubble flying all about in neighboring businesses — including this one … which was just a few short yards away from the blast.
TMZ has obtained new video captured from inside a sports bar named Buffalo’s — which sits at 2nd Ave and Commerce Street … literally right down the block from where the RV in question blew up in a ball of fire. It’s clear from this clip — the impact was absolutely immense.
The security footage from inside shows 4 different angles from within the building — all of which documented the moment shock waves from the explosion came roaring through their building early Christmas morning … sending window fragments and debris in every direction.
The apparent bombing seems to have been orchestrated to go down in the wee hours — right before 6:30 AM, based on what we’re seeing here — which is fortunate for the Buffalo’s team … because it doesn’t look like anyone was inside yet. If they were, they would’ve almost certainly been seriously injured, or possibly killed by the explosion or flying debris.
Of course, there are reports of 3 injuries — but, thankfully, none of them critical. Law enforcement has identified one person of interest, and agents are at his home now investigating … but so far, nobody is in custody. It’s likely the suspected bomber is dead.
As for Buffalo’s … they’re especially in need of some help right now. Not only were they struck hard by the pandemic and new COVID measures in Davidson County, but their staffers have also been affected by natural disasters from earlier this year — and now, this mess.
They got a GoFundMe set up to help hold over hourly employees’ living expenses as upper management figures out the next steps. Any and every little bit helps, we’re sure.
