VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - Officials at a San Francisco Bay Area school district say a staff member suffered a burn injury to a hand after an explosion in a classroom that was under construction.

Vallejo High School was evacuated after the blast around 8 a.m. Friday. School officials say students were not near the classroom, and no students were harmed.

Authorities later gave the school the all-clear and classes resumed.

The cause of the blast was under investigation. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Paul Moreno said the utility did not detect any leaks or other problems with its gas lines leading to the school.
