2 injured in explosion at Wash. fair boothAugust 26, 2013 @ 5:45 pm
MONROE, Wash. (AP) - A fire official says two people have been injured by a small explosion at an Evergreen State Fair vendor booth in Monroe, Wash.
The Monday afternoon explosion at a booth selling fireplaces and stoves sent one male booth worker to a hospital for treatment of injuries from flying glass. A female employee was treated on scene. The Daily Herald of Everett reports the injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening.
Monroe Assistant Fire Chief Steve Guptill says the explosion apparently occurred after a problem with lighting a gas stove.
The Snohomish County fire marshal's office is investigating.
