Video posted to YouTube shows an explosion that happened during a fire at a construction site in downtown Iowa City Tuesday afternoon.

It happened just before 2:45 p.m. on the corner of Clinton and Burlington streets, at the Hodge-Hieronymus Square development.

About a minute into the video, flames can be seen shooting from the building before an explosion of fire. The video was posted to YouTube Channel Cheap Shot by Jared VanSpeybroeck.

No one was hurt. Crews had the fire out in less than 30 minutes.

The planned building would feature two 7-story towers with hotel, office, retail, and apartment space.

The fire remains under investigation.
