Authorities: 1 dead, 1 missing, 1 hurt after home explosion


MOUNTAIN TOP, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say one person has been killed and another is missing after an explosion destroyed a home in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Another person was injured in the blast, which occurred just before 2 a.m. Friday in Dorrance.

Emergency responders found an injured adult man outside the home when they arrived. He told them his parents were still inside the home, and one body was found a short time later.

But the body was so badly burned, authorities say they don’t know if it was a man or a woman.

The injured man was taken to a hospital, but his name and further details on his injuries were not immediately disclosed.

The cause of the blast remains under investigation.
