We're getting a better idea of the damage caused by a gas explosion at the Gaylord Opryland Resort.

Officials at the Nashville hotel say there's major damage to an escalator, walls and parts of the ceiling.

It could cost around $750,000 to fix it all.

Firefighters say a gas leak ignited in the mechanical room, causing the explosion.

No one was hurt, but 5,000 guests in the hotel had to be evacuated for hours last night.
