A home explosion late Friday night has claimed the life of a Seward County man. The Seward County Fire Department was dispatched Friday evening at 11:14pm on the reports of a home explosion in the 17000 block of Road V. Upon arrival first, responding found the residence to be collapsed with the exception of the garage area, with man trapped inside. The mans wife, who was also in the structure at the time of the explosion, was able to escape, and call for help. She was transported to Southwest Medical Center to be treated for her injuries.The victim was pulled from the collapsed structure, and also taken to SWMC, where he died from his injuries. The State Of Kansas Fire Marshall was called to the scene, and arrived at 1:38am Saturday morning. Investigators remained on scene until 8:00pm Saturday night. Preliminary reports show a leak of some sort caused the explosion, as the home had both LP and propane lines to the structure. This incident remains under investigation by local and State authorities
