NYACK, N.Y. (AP) -- An explosion at a college campus building north of New York City has injured seven people, but authorities say none of the injuries are life-threatening.
The explosion at Nyack College happened just before noon.
A Rockland County undersheriff says the injured include one student and six staff. Robert Van Cura says they were taken to hospitals.
The college sent out a tweet saying that "Everyone is doing ok."
Authorities say there's a gas leak at the building, but it's unclear if it caused the explosion or if the explosion caused the leak.
Nyack College is a Christian college about 25 miles north of New York City.
