What would you do if you were just enjoying a recreational skate down at your local hockey rink when all of a sudden a sizeable explosion occurred down a nearby hallway? Well, that happened this weekend in Kentucky.
While a number of skaters were present, there was a blast at the Lexington Ice Center on Saturday night, close to one of their ice pads. You can watch video of the incident here.
David Christopher, one of the rink’s owners, told WKYT on Sunday that it was caused by a propane leak when employees were replacing the tank on the Zamboni machine. Luckily no damage was done and no one was injured by the explosion.
The Lexington Ice Center has had a bad streak of luck recently, as this is not the only disaster to take place under its roof in the last six months.
In July 2021, a massive fire heavily damaged the second rink at the center, forcing a substantial rebuild to take place. Despite the blaze making the rink unusable, no one was hurt.
Happening now—we’re on the scene of a large fire in the 500 block of Eureka Springs Drive. The Lexington Fire Department has 28 units out here. They got here around 6:15. The cause is under investigation, but we’re told by LFD that no one inside or in the area was hurt. @WKYT pic.twitter.com/x27PRMtk9O

Maybe the hockey gods just really dislike any sort of ice existing in Kentucky.
