Russell Park apartment building evacuated after small explosion

UC Davis campus police evacuated a housing complex building on 418 Russell Park this morning, after they were alerted that a UC Davis researcher was treated at a Davis hospital for a hand injuries from a minor explosion, according to the UC Davis News Service.

The building housed 13 people.

Police discovered chemicals in an apartment, and though a majority of the area is stable, access will be restricted throughout the day, as a precaution.
Childcare at the Russell Park Child Development Center was also temporarily disbanded and is expected to reopen tomorrow.
