At least two people were killed in an apparent steam pipe explosion at a Veteran Affairs hospital in Connecticut Friday morning, according to a report.

Connecticut State Police said in a tweet just before 10 a.m. that they were dispatched to the medical center in West Haven to assist local fire marshals with a ‚Äúreported explosion.”

A fire official later told the New Haven Register that the blast came from a steam pipe in one of the buildings.

There was no immediate word on the extent of the damage. It was also unclear whether anyone else was hurt by the explosion.
