At least two people suffered injuries in Oak Creek Canyon in a recent explosion and fire caused by a leaking propane tank near an inn, a report of Arizona Daily Sun stated on November 21.

Information from the Sedona Fire District (SFD) revealed that on November 18 the Butterfly Garden Inn in the 9000 block of North State Route 89A caught fire. One of the two people injured in the fire was airlifted to a burn center in Arizona due to the severity of his burn injuries. Responding crews immediately turned off the other gas lines in the area. The fire, according to responding fire crews, was caused by a propane explosion that came from a leaking tank inside Butterfly’s kitchen and facilities for employees. Authorities were still investigating the possible cause of the fire. The names of the persons injured were not released.
