1 injured in Ga. college boiler room explosion

ATLANTA (AP) - Fire officials say a man was injured when a piece of boiler room equipment at Morehouse College exploded.

Authorities say the explosion happened around 2:30 p.m. Friday and the force blew out the windows and bay doors.

Officials say the building on Westview Drive is still structurally intact. Authorities say the man who was injured is being evaluated at the scene and has not been hospitalized.

The nature of the man's injuries was not immediately clear and officials are not yet sure if he is affiliated with the college.
