Mississippi woman recovering after explosion at camper
VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi woman is recovering after an explosion blew her out the door of her camper.
Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace tells The Vicksburg Post that the 75-year-old woman suffered injuries to her hands and feet during the Monday explosion in Eagle Lake, north of Vicksburg.
Pace says she was taken to a Vicksburg hospital and released after treatment. The explosion also destroyed a Honda Civic parked next to the camper.
The sheriff says the woman told fire and law enforcement officials that she had been smelling propane for several days before the explosion. Pace says investigators aren’t sure where the leak was, but says there’s no reason to think it was anything but an accident.
