House explosion in ND leaves one man injured
A Mandan man is alive after his house exploded Sunday morning, just moments after walking out the door, according to Morton County Public Information Officer Maxine Herr.
Around 6:30 Sunday morning State Radio received the call about the house explosion near Solen.
Morton County Sheriff's Deputy responded and found the man, who sustained an arm injury, was able to drive himself to meet ambulance.
Flasher Fire worked to distinguish the fire, but the home is a total loss.
The victim's daughter and her friend told authorities that her father had been out of the house earlier, but returned as he had forgotten something. When he exited the home the second time, the house exploded.
The incident remains under investigation.
