REDDING, Calif. -Redding Fire says two people were injured in an RV explosion early Thursday morning.
Investigators say the explosion was caused by a propane leak inside the trailer, which blew out both walls around 5 a.m. Thursday. The RV was parked in the parking lot of the 99 Cent Store on Hilltop Drive. Firefighters have not determined the ignition source of the explosion.
Redding Fire says a couple in their late 50's were inside the RV at the time of the explosion. A man was flown to UC Davis Medical Center with second-degree burns over 60 percent of his body. A woman suffered minor burns to her head, but investigators say a blanket covered her from the fire.
Officials say the couple was living in the 20-foot trailer for some time, and are believed to be homeless. Investigators say they were not victims of the Carr or Camp Fires.
