Crews searching for victims after explosion at Minneapolis school

Section of Minneapolis school collapses, at Least 1 Dead

Jacobson, the school spokeswoman, said Carlson graduated with the Minnehaha Academy class of 1953 and went to Sunday school there.

The blast, fire and collapse Wednesday morning occurred in the upper school.

A school gym coach said that the explosion came shortly after the warning was raised.

He was a graduate of the school - and his children also attended - before he returned as a custodian. School officials later confirmed that Berg, who has an adult daughter, had died in the tragedy.

The nine injured were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The blast Wednesday shook the building and started a fire.

"I used to live in San Francisco and there are two types: one is a short quick one the other is a longer one it felt like the plates were shifting".

Initially, the Minneapolis Fire Department reported that one person had been killed but later retracted that report. The Fire Department also confirmed that it had recovered two bodies in the wreckage, but it did not disclose their identities. Search and rescue teams spent most of the day hoping that pile contained enough void space for Carlson to have survived, though ultimately firefighters found his body just after 8 p.m. next to the spot where Berg was found hours earlier.

Their blast-related injuries ranged from head trauma and broken bones to cuts and scrapes.

Governor Mark Dayton released a statement saying his office was in contact with city officials and the state "will provide any and all resources necessary" to help first responders and ensure everyone is safe.

Tyner declined to say if those people were school employees or part of the construction crew, which he said was doing boiler work.

It appeared that no children were hurt in the incident and that all students and other staff members were eventually "accounted for and safe", officials said.

The Christian college-prep school serves students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

Master Mechanical Inc. was issued a permit on June 7 for "gas piping and hooking up meter" at the location, the paper reported, citing city records.

Fire officials are still assessing how to inspect the impacted area.

Berg and Doepke's mother both live near Minnehaha Academy, so when he heard about the explosion, he immediately went to the scene.

"We have to be very intentional about that", Tyner said.

A third person believed to be missing was found uninjured outside the building on the campus of Minnehaha Academy at about noon local time, he said.

At the time of filing this report, two people are still unaccounted for, and five others were transported to a local hospital with injuries.

"Parts of the ceiling sort of collapsed and things were falling", she said as she left the scene with a family friend who had gone to pick her up after practice.
