Chase building closed, UTEP MBA classes cancelled
EPFD finds smoke in basement, neighbors say they heard an explosion
El Paso — The Chase building in Downtown is closed for the day after smoke was found in the electrical room in the basement. About 500 people were affected; all were evacuated then let back in for their belongings.
One viewer sent us video taken from the Mills Buiding about 20 seconds after what he says sounded like an explosion. Smoke is clearly visible.
UTEP MBA classes for tonight are cancelled.
