The university told The Associated Press that construction work was the cause and the explosion was “accidental”. Photos and images from the scene show a fireball erupting into the sky above the building where a large fire could already be seen on the roof. Although it all looks extremely bad, authorities in the city and university insisted there were no risks of chemical leaks.

The major explosion happened at around 9 a.m. and shortly after 10 a.m., the university said the fire was “under control” and that some buildings had been re-opened. However, students were asked to stay 100 meters away from the burnt building.

The major incident comes just days after a blast apparently caused by a gas leak hit a Paris bakery. Four people were left dead as a result of the explosion.
