Officials Say Gas Caused Fla. House Explosion



State fire officials in Florida say an explosion that killed one local man and injured another looks like it was caused by gas or vapor.
 
37 year old Michael Todd Brower of Carterville died in the explosion in Destin, Florida on Saturday night.
 
Heartland Pediatric Clinic Pediatrician Luis Lopez was seriously injured in the explosion. Lopez owned the home in Destin.
 
Early on, the Florida state fire marshal’s office focused its investigation into the fire on some acetylene torches that had been rented to do work on the home.
 
Lopez remains in critical condition at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola this morning.
