PROVO -- An electrical fire at BYU sent a worker to the hospital Thursday morning. It happened in the Clyde Building on campus around 9:30.
The worker accidentally drilled into a high voltage line, causing a transformer to explode. Many students reported hearing a loud boom.
The worker was taken to the hospital to be treated for burns on his hands and face, and was later released.
Officials at the university said the man works for an electrical contractor.
Classes at the Clyde building have been canceled for Thursday and Friday, while repairs are made.
