An explosion in downtown Bozeman, Mont., has collapsed three buildings and prompted the evacuation of a two-block area.

Authorities say they don’t know whether anyone was hurt in Thursday morning’s blast. But a spokeswoman for the main medical facility in the city of about 38,000 says no victims of the explosion had been admitted there.

KBZK-TV says a restaurant and bar was destroyed and another bar was heavily damaged.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle says officials were investigating the possibility that a natural gas leak caused the explosion.
