Two people injured in Glens Falls explosion
An explosion has injured two people.
It happened around 10 a.m. Wednesday behind the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 773 on Luzerne Road.
A Glens Falls city spokesperson says two men – ages 36 and 55 – went into a storage unit to get tables out for a Thanksgiving gathering. There was a strong smell of gas inside at the time. They had finished one trip, and were on the second trip when the explosion happened.
Both men were flown to Burlington Medical Center in Vermont.
The cause of the explosion is under investigation. However, investigators say they found two grills in the storage unit – both with 20 pound propane tanks.
