EAST VILLAGE (PIX11) -- "Sopranos" star Drea de Matteo is one of many New Yorkers who lost a home Thursday after an explosion caused three buildings to collapse in the East Village.

The 43-year-old actress has lived at what was once 123 2nd Avenue for the last 22 years. She was not injured in the blast.

De Matteo spoke about her heartbreak as she posted a photo on Instagram of her view from across the street as FDNY battled the flames at 123 2nd Avenue.

The post read, "A hole where my NYC home of the last 22 years once stood ... RIP 123 2nd Avenue."

The powerful blast caused three buildings to collapse, according to NYPD. Twenty civilians were hurt in the blast, four of them critically, the mayor’s office said in a Friday morning update. Four firefighters and an EMS worker suffered minor injuries, officials said. Two people are still unaccounted for.
