SHADYSIDE, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say a man has been killed in a house explosion in eastern Ohio.
It happened Monday afternoon in the Belmont County village of Shadyside, just outside of Wheeling, West Virginia.
Authorities say a propane gas leak sparked an explosion that sent the roof of the home and other debris flying into the street. Some nearby homes were also damaged.
The explosion then caused a massive fire.
The victim’s name has not yet been released. No other injuries were reported.
Residents in the neighborhood say they felt their doors and windows rattle.
A nearby high school was evacuated as a precaution.
Authorities say they believe the leak has been contained. They continue to investigate.
