The Boulder City Police Department confirmed to The US Sun they have units en route to the scene following an explosion at the dam.

A tourist visiting the site captured a video showing the fire may have occurred in a building near the dam’s base.

However, cops have yet to determine what part of the dam the explosion took place.

A second video on Twitter shows visitors on a bridge overlooking the dam’s blaze as sirens rang in the background.
