House explosion outside of Harris
A residence near Fish Lake County Park was damaged by an explosion Thursday night, July 20 about 10 p.m.
A sheriff’s spokesperson reports a male and female were in the house, (see photo) on County Road 10 when the explosion, strong enough to toss the male out of the building, occurred. The man was able to call 9-1-1.
A North Branch Police Officer shut off the propane tank service and authorities were able to successfully contain the rural site. The two people transported for medical care did not appear to have serious injuries, authorities stated.
The Minnesota Fire Marshal’s office is notified whenever there is an explosion involved and has assigned an investigator. Harris, North Branch and Rush City firefighters also responded.
