MURRAY, KY (Thu 29 Jun 2017) - Kentucky State Police have transferred control of the explosion scene on the campus of Murray State University to the Kentucky State Fire Marshal's Office. Based on preliminary investigation, the explosion is believed to have been related to a natural gas release. After consulting with state and federal prosecutors about preliminary findings, the incident is believed to be non-criminal in nature. However, the investigation is ongoing and is expected to take a significant amount of time.
KSP confirmed with Vanderbilt Medical Center this morning that Dakota Fields is still in stable condition.
Further inquiries should be directed to the Kentucky Fire Marshall Office at 502-564-5525. The point of contact at their office is Ricki Gardenhire, Public Information Officer.
