Explosion Rocks New York College

What firefighters believe was a major gas explosion rocked the campus of Nyack College in New York today, injuring at least seven people. While none of those seven injuries appear to be life-threatening, the New York Daily News reports that emergency responders are searching the area for bodies. But authorities tell CBS New York that though they initially believed multiple people had been trapped by the blast, everyone has now been accounted for.

All of the surrounding homes are being evacuated while authorities—including the FBI—investigate the blast. "We're looking to see if there is anything for us to look at," an FBI spokesman says. A utility company official tells ABC 7 that no work was being done at the campus. (Read more Nyack College stories.)
