Three children injured in explosion

Date Posted: 1998-04-12

Three children, all seven years old, were injured early Friday afternoon after playing in an abandoned home in Yonashiro Town. After playing with an unused LP gas container in the kitchen of the empty building, the canister exploded and the children sustained burns to their hands and faces.

All three were taken to a local hospital, where two of the youngsters are expected to spend at least a month, recovering from severe burns. The other boy was released after doctors determined he sustained only light burns to his face.

After questioning the boys, police discovered that the youths played inside the building most days after returning home from school. The boys did not realize that the canister was dangerous and had attempted to open it several times. It is suspected that the potable substance leaked through the container, weak from age and disuse, and suddenly exploded while the children were playing in the near vicinity. While a fire did break out, the only damages to the abandoned home were broken windows and some smoke damage.
