House Explosion Burns 2 Women, Propane Suspected Cause

An explosion at a house burned 2 women, both of whom were flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. The preliminary investigation points to propane cylinders outside of the house as the cause of the explosion.

“We are currently handling a case where a man was severely burned in a house explosion caused by a propane tank,” said Attorney Fred Pritzker. In that case, the man sustained 2nd, 3rd and 4th-degree burns on his back and arms. “Our investigation has found evidence that the propane company that filled the tank prior to the explosion was negligent.”

The two women were mother and daughter.

Last month, a man and woman were killed in a house explosion caused by propane gas, which was used as fuel.

And in June, another house explosion and fire was caused by propane. That fire killed a husband and wife. Neighbors said the explosion caused a massive fire that prevented them from attempting a rescue.
