NYACK, N.Y. (AP) — An explosion in a college campus building north of New York City blew out windows. There are reports of injuries, but the college says everyone was doing OK.
The explosion at Nyack (NY'-ak) College happened just before noon. A spokesman for the Rockland County executive's office says county fire departments are responding.
Witnesses tell The Journal-News (http://lohud.us/14sAORK ) that the explosion blew out windows and a door.
There was no word on the extent and severity of injuries, but the college sent out a tweet saying that "Everyone is doing ok."
Nyack College is a Christian college about 25 miles north of New York City. The explosion happened at a building on South Highland Avenue, a main campus road.
