Power restored at UC Berkeley after explosion

BERKELEY — Power was restored to most of the University of California, Berkeley, Tuesday morning, after an explosion left one person hospitalized for minor burns, campus officials said.

The school's Twitter feed announced early Tuesday that most classes would meet as scheduled.

Eleven buildings remained without power and classes in those buildings were canceled.

The explosion occurred in an underground utility vault outside California Hall before 7 p.m. Monday as crews were trying to restore power following an outage.

In addition to the one person hospitalized, three others also received minor burns but refused treatment, said UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof.
