Blasting at the construction site for a New York City subway line has shattered windows and sent smoke billowing up to the street.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman Marjorie Anders says something went wrong Tuesday as contractors were blasting a tunnel for the Second Avenue subway. She says no one was injured.

Anders says the blast happened at about 1 p.m. Tuesday at East 72nd Street and Second Avenue. Fire trucks are at the scene. She says the cause is under investigation.
