Julio-César Chávez with Reuters said the explosion happened at the Navy Yard ice rink, and that it was a big enough flash that authorities want the Department of Defense to investigate.

The blast blew a hole into the ice rink and blew out a nearby glass pane. Investigators are on their way to the scene as midnight approaches.
