Late yesterday, fire officials had not determined the cause of the explosion, but Cambridge Deputy Fire Chief John Gelinas said gas valves in the fourth-floor laboratory were turned on for tests at the time.

The explosion blew out much of one wall on the brick building's fourth floor facing Bent Street and sent the ceiling and ventilators on the third and fourth floors crashing down.
"Pressure from the explosion pushed through the building and pushed the building out," Gelinas said.
