SHELTON, Conn. (AP) _ Police say three people have been seriously burned in an explosion at a house in Shelton.

Shelton Police Lt. Robert Kozlowsky tells the Connecticut Post on Monday that two of the injured are believed to be workers for the Pioneer Gas Co.

Early reports indicate the explosion that happened just before 2 p.m. may have been caused by a propane tank at the house.

The injured were taken to Bridgeport Hospital Burn Center.

Reports from the scene said the house in Shelton’s Pine Rock Park section showed little damage to the exterior. A Pioneer Gas. Co. propane truck was parked outside the house.
