      Chemical explosion at Fox News building
      28 minutes ago

      NEW YORK - A small chemical explosion was reported
      Monday in the building that houses Fox News, officials
      said. One person was hurt.

      The explosion happened at 10:39 a.m. on the building's
      45th floor, which houses the heating and cooling
      systems for the 47-story building.

      "We have some sort of reaction between two chemicals
      that caused a slight explosion," said fire spokesman
      Jim Long.

      There are no offices on the floor, but three floors
      were evacuated.

      The building is the headquarters for NewsCorp and
      houses Fox News and the New York Post, which were
      unaffected. Fox News is in the basement and continued
      broadcasting without interruption.

      The injured person had cuts to the head, officials said.
