1 man injured after Henderson house explosion

HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) – A man has been burned after an explosion ripped through a Henderson house.

Henderson Assistant Fire Chief Jeremy Baxter tells The Gleaner that authorities are unsure what caused the Monday evening explosion, which was strong enough to blow out part of a wall on the side of the brick house.

Baxter says the man’s injuries were “substantial,” but had no further updates on the man’s condition.

Two other people had been inside when the explosion occurred, but Baxter says neither was injured.

The State Fire Marshall’s Office has been called to assist the Henderson Fire Department with the investigation.
