2 men hurt in trailer explosion in northern Colorado
FREDERICK, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say two men were injured when a fifth-wheel trailer exploded in a rural part of northern Colorado.
The Weld County Sheriff’s Office says a 20-year-old man and a 70-year-old man were in stable condition after Monday night’s blast near Frederick. It’s unclear what caused the explosion, but investigators say it was not related to the oil and gas industry.
Teresa Anderson, who owns the nearby B Bold Ranch RV Park and Storage, says she heard “a big boom, one big boom” just after 8 p.m. The trailer was fully engulfed in flames when deputies arrived.
Investigators have not detailed the men’s injuries.
Frederick is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Denver.
