Explosion At Yale

(AP) There has been an explosion at Yale Law School.

Police tell the Associated Press that the explosion occurred in the mail room of the law school and that the floor may have partial collapsed.

James Foye, a spokesman for Mayor John DeStefano, told CBS News there did not appear to be any injuries. The explosion appeared to be contained in a single room believed to be the mail room or near the mail room.

A fire department dispatcher says crews are on the scene.

The incident comes as the nation was on elevated alert for possible terrorist attacks and several hours after President Bush - a Yale alumnus - visited the state to speak at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy graduation ceremony in New London.

A spokeswoman for the FBI in New Haven said members of the agency's Joint Terrorism Task Force were dispatched to the scene.
