A massive gas explosion rocked a New York City high school Thursday night, injuring at least three people, fire officials said. The blast occurred at JFK High School in The Bronx just after 8 p.m. and hundreds of firefighters responded, according to the FDNY. The explosion occurred at about 8 p.m. EDT at John F. Kennedy High School in New York’s Bronx borough while construction work was going on in a sixth-floor laboratory, a police spokesman said.

 

 

  • A fire department spokesman said all three of the injured were taken to Jacobi Medical Center, two with non-life-threatening injuries.
  • It’s unclear what sparked the explosion, which damaged the 4th-6th floors of the school.
  • The police spokesman said there was damage to two non-load-bearing walls.
