DETROIT (AP) -- Authorities say the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra has been damaged in a gas explosion that sent at least three manhole covers flying into the air. No injuries were reported.
The blast happened Sunday morning at Orchestra Hall, part of the Max Fisher Music Center in Detroit's cultural center just north of downtown. The symphony says the extent of the damage isn't immediately known.
DTE Energy Co. spokesman Len Singer tells The Detroit News that says an underground cable apparently failed and triggered the blast. WWJ-AM says officials believe gas built up in sewer lines until it ignited.
The symphony moved Sunday's Sphinx 15 Finals Competition to Hill Auditorium at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The competition is for young black and Latino string musicians.
