LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an explosion in an Ohio home during installation of a geothermal heating system injured three workers, one seriously.
Fire officials in the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District said the blast occurred in the basement of the Washington Township home just after 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Officials called it a “flash explosion” that caused a fire that spread to the main level of the residence.
Fire officials said three Jackson Geothermal employees were injured, one flown to a hospital with severe burns and another being treated for burns that weren’t severe.
Officials said family members were home at the time of the explosion but were uninjured.
