House Explosion Kills One
The State Fire Marshall's Office has determined propane leak caused a house to explode just outside of Rising City Friday morning. A 16-year-old girl was killed in the accident. Her grandmother, 83 year-old Neva Sorensen is in fair condition at a local hospital as of Friday night. Her nephew, Ken Callaghand received burns on 50% of his body. He is listed as in critical condition.
Authorities say the blast occurred just before nine Friday morning. When fire crews arrived on the scene just after nine o'clock, they found there was little they could do.
