Two UPS employees were injured in an explosion at a freight facility in Lexington, Kentucky, on Wednesday. The courier company said the cause appeared to be accidental.

According to UPS, the culprit may have been a gas leak from a propane tank inside a trailer. The two employees received only minor injuries but the blast caused significant structural damage to the facility, which was evacuated and closed.

The Lexington Fire Department released some photos of the aftermath, including an aerial shot, showing scattered debris and a missing section of roof.

It is not known when operations will resume, or if there will be disruptions to freight volume.
