ATTICA, Ind. — A home exploded in Fountain County Monday morning.
Attica police chief Robert Cole tells WLFI they arrived to find the house engulfed in flames in the towns historic district. He says a man suffering from third degree burns was standing outside.
The man told investigators he lit a cigarette and then was thrown from the house when the blast happened. He’s stable at the hospital.
Three firefighters suffered heat exhaustion as they tried to get the flames under control. All three will be okay.
The fire is out, and investigators say a gas leak may have been the cause of the blast.
