BATH, Maine (February 12, 2013)—A body was found Tuesday in the rubble of a home destroyed in an early-morning explosion in Bath, Maine, investigators said.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said the single-story duplex blew up and caught fire at around 5 a.m. Tuesday in Bath.
Fire investigators were working to determine the cause, but the duplex used propane as its heating source.
The explosion was big enough that it scattered debris a quarter mile away, with clothing, wood, insulation, shingles, and other debris landing in trees and on top of neighbor's homes.
McCausland says at least four people were hospitalized, but the identity of the victim has not been confirmed.
McCausland says the duplex is in a development built during World War II to house shipyard workers.
