Explosion in US school kills two, injures nine

Two die in US school explosion
Two people were killed and nine injured on Wednesday after a gas explosion ripped through a Christian private school at Minneapolis city in Minnesota State of US, starting a fire and causing a building to collapse, authorities said.

The body of a school employee was recovered at 8:00 pm CDT from the rubble at the Minnehaha Academy, about 10 hours after the explosion, Minneapolis Fire Chief John Fruetel said.

The nine people who were injured were taken to local hospitals, and one was in critical condition, Fruetel said.

School was not in session due to summer break, the fire chief said.

Authorities said there were early indications that a ruptured gas line may have led to the explosion and that it was caused by contractors working at the school. 

According to its website, Minnehaha Academy was founded in 1913 and teaches more than 800 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade on two campuses, reports Reuters.
