    This place can't catch a break. Surprisingly, no one injured due to the explosion.

    More than 5,000 people were evacuated after a gas leak caused a blast in the mechanical room of the hotel around 8:15 p.m.​
    According to Metro police spokesman Don Aaron, natural gas got into a steam line in the mechanical room. No foul play is suspected, said investigators.​
    One person suffered a hurt ankle during the evacuation, but no other injuries were reported.​
    A spokesperson for Gaylord said the explosion was located near the Ryman exhibit hall in the convention center.​

    As in "an employee/contractor connected a natural gas pipe to a steam pipe?" That seems like a very serious installation issue if that is the case.
