At least seven people, including at least one child, were hospitalized due to the injuries they sustained in an explosion that took place inside their home in Connecticut, an August 5 article of Fox 4 reported.
Lieutenant William Meier of the Vernon Police Department said that all seven people on August 4 survived the blast that he described as “catastrophic.” Responding fire crews reportedly heard screams coming from the burning home. The four children inside, whose ages were between 7 and 16, were transported to the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. The two injured adults were transported to a different hospital while the third one did not seek medical attention. Fire authorities believe that the explosion was likely caused by a gas explosion.
