There was an explosion Wednesday morning at a UPS facility in Lexington, Kentucky, and at least two people were taken to the hospital, officials said.

There is “significant structural damage” reported to the building.

Officials said there was “nothing suspicious” about the explosion at this time.

Lexington Fire Department Battalion Chief Jason Wells said everyone at the facility is “extremely lucky” the injuries weren’t worse, as the first two people taken to the hospital suffered burns and possible concussions.

Right now, it is believed a truck and trailer with an acetylene tank exploded, Wells said.

Officials are not reporting any deaths at this time.

Injuries are non-life threatening, fire officials said.

Two people were taken to the hospital and six others were going to be evaluated.

There is an ongoing investigation into what might have caused the explosion.
