VIDEO: Explosion blasts apart Murray State dorm

An explosion blew apart a dorm at Murray State University in Kentucky last week. The blast was captured on a surveillance camera across from the dorm.

The video shows the sudden explosion. It is so strong that it appears to turn the camera from its initial position. There is then an additional impact on the side of the dorm.

Watch the video above.

According to WPSD, two people were injured in the blast. One was treated at the scene. The other was hospitalized and has since been released. The explosion damaged three other dorms and a dining hall.

Investigators believe natural gas spontaneously combusted. It is still under investigation.
