Information coming from the Waupaca County Chief Deputy revealed that 39-year-old Adrian Gibbs and 53-year-old Douglas Roggenbauer sustained burn injuries in a propane gas blast that happened in their house in the E1500 block of Erickson Road. A woman who was also in the house when the explosion happened told authorities that the two men, one of whom is her boyfriend, decided to cook using the stove when later they detected it was leaking before the blast happened.
