VERNON, N.Y. -- A log cabin was destroyed and one man was injured after a propane tank exploded at the Vernon home.
The Vernon fire chief says the man, who was the landlord of the cabin, was trying to light the pilot on a propane stove, but a leak in the propane line caused an explosion. The force of the explosion blew the man across the room and took out an entire wall of the cabin.
The man suffered first-degree burns to his face, and was treated at the scene. He declined to seek further treatment at a hospital.
