Dec. 05, 2017
BALTIMORE HIGHLANDS, Md. (AP) — Authorities say one person was seriously injured in an explosion at a home in Maryland.
Baltimore County Fire Captain Tim Rostkowski told news outlets that the man hurt in the Monday afternoon explosion was airlifted to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
Rostkowski said the single-story home in southwest Baltimore County sustained significant damage, with the explosion moving it off its foundation. Neighboring homes did not appear to have sustained any damage.
Firefighters were still working to put out flames more than two hours after the explosion. The cause of the incident remains under investigation. Rostkowski says the department doesn't have reason to believe the cause was suspicious.
