Firefighters from multiple departments responded to the explosion that took place at about 9 p.m. on Elzeys Road. Mary Chesnut suffered significant burn injuries in the explosion and was taken to the hospital. Neighbors reported hearing a “big huge bang” before rushing to help Chesnut. One neighbor told 4029 News that he turned off the home’s propane tank.
