Boiler implodes at building on Quinnipiac campus

HAMDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A building on the campus of Quinnipiac University was evacuated after a boiler imploded in the facility Tuesday afternoon. 

A maintenance worker was working on one boiler at Lender Building, which houses business and communications, when another imploded around 3 p.m. 

No one was injured during the incident, however three workers were checked out at the Yale-New Haven Occupational Health Center as a precaution.

University officials said there is no damage to the building beyond the boiler itself.

Several students have tweeted about the blast and the noise it made throughout campus.

The building remained around 3:30 p.m. and people were allowed back inside.
