MINNEWAUKAN (AP) – An explosion at an apartment building in Minnewaukan caused several thousand dollars in damage and injured one person.

Benson County Sheriff Steve Rohrer tells the Grand Forks Herald that the blast about 3 a.m. Tuesday was caused by a furnace propane line that wasn’t properly sealed.

The injured man was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries. He was not immediately identified.

Authorities say the other apartments in the building are safe to occupy.
