WARREN COUNTY, Ohio — An explosion at a home in Washington Township left three people injured Tuesday.

The explosion took place at a home in the 10300 block of Wilmington Road in Washington Township at around 1:34 p.m.

According to officials from the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District, a company was installing a geothermal system when the explosion took place in the basement. Officials said it was a “flash explosion,” meaning the explosion did not blow up the entire home.

The explosion caused a fire that extended into the main level of the home.

Fire officials said three people were injured from the explosion. All of them were Jackson Geothermal employees.

One person was severely injured with burns and was flown to Miami Valley Hospital. Another person was taken to Clinton Memorial Hospital for treatment of burns but their injuries were “not severe,” according to Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District. The third person refused treatment at the scene.

The family of the home was at home at the time of the explosion, but was not injured.
