The Hoover Dam, which created the artificial lake Mead, is a popular destination for tourists.
A tourist who was visiting the Hoover Dam shared a video on Tuesday that showed a small explosion followed by thick smoke.
Kristy Hairston, who was at the dam on Tuesday and claims to have heard an explosion, filmed herself and captured an audio clip in which a woman can be heard exclaiming, “My goodness, something’s just blown up.”
In addition, the sound of a male voice may be heard reporting on the explosion and fire at the dam. This voice may belong to a security guard or tour guide.
After some time had passed, a Twitter account associated with the fire department in Boulder City, Nevada, stated that the incident had been extinguished before their arrival.
