UPDATED February 7, 2023– A house explosion at a construction site in East Bethel, Minnesota, injured three workers. The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office described the scene on the 2800 block of Viking Boulevard as “active” Monday morning. A spokesperson from Allina Health told Kare 11 News that an air ambulance was called to the scene after EMS crews rescued three men from the rubble. 35-year-old Keith Hyovalti of Oak Grove, 47-year-old William Swanson of Zimmerman, and 47-year-old James Wells of Coon Rapids were airlifted to HCMC where they are in stable condition. Hyovalti and Wells are electricians who work for 3-Way Electric in Anoka. Swanson is a home builder.

The cause of the house explosion is still under investigation. The owner of the electric company told the Star Tribune that the likely source was “a malfunction with the heater in the basement to thaw out the floors.”

Attorney Eric Hageman, who leads the Pritzker Hageman Burn Injury Legal Team says, “It’s crucial to do an independent investigation in any case involving severe burn injuries or wrongful death.
