Firefighters: House explosion near Atlanta injures 2 men
MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Firefighters say an explosion at a house for sale in the Atlanta area has injured two men.
Cobb County fire spokesman Dan Dupree tells news outlets the explosion happened Sunday afternoon at a home under repair. The men had been working in the crawl space and were taken to a hospital with minor to moderate burns.
Dupree says the men were trying to fix plumbing under the home but a torch they were using was leaking gas.
No one was living at the house and it will likely be torn down because of extensive damage from the blast.
