Propane tank explosion injures one

LOWER LAKE – A fire Friday morning reportedly left one person so seriously injured that they had to be transported to a burn unit.


The California Highway Patrol incident logs reported that a propane tank explosion caused a vegetation and structure fire at Brown's Recreation Center on Orchard and Highway 53 in Lower Lake. The fire was reported at 9:56 a.m.


The victim, whose identity and gender wasn't reported by CHP, was transported by officials to Redbud Hospital's emergency room, and then transported via REACH helicopter to a burn center due to the severity of their injuries.


Calls to Lake County Fire Protection District yielded no further information on Friday. Fire officials were out on other calls all day and were unavailable for comment.
