MORNING EXPLOSION: Cause Under Investigation
An early morning loud noise first thought to be another storm turned out to be an explosion.
Marshall County officials responded to a 911 call from a neighbor after 4 a.m. Saturday morning.
“About 4:15, 4:30 this morning there was an earth shattering Ka-Boom. I thought it was lightning or thunder so I jumped out of bed but I saw there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I came over here, saw the fire and the propane tank and I went back inside and called 911,” said neighbor Raymond Moore.
The explosion happened near Bangor at a crop production services building. Officials said the explosion happened inside and caused a small fire that crews quickly put out.
The explosion caused significant damage to the building. No one was injured.
The cause of the explosion is under investigation.
