An explosion inside an Ames Street laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge injured a student working on a project there early this evening, officials said.
The student was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with a non-life-threatening injury to the hand, according to Frank Pasquarello, spokesman for the Cambridge Police Department. There did not appear to be any damage to the rest of the building, which an MIT spokeswoman identified as Building 16, and there was not significant damage inside the room where the explosion occurred.
It was not clear early this evening what exploded, Pasquarello said.
