AUBURN — One person was seriously hurt Sunday evening in an explosion in a Broadview Avenue home.

Auburn Fire Chief Bob Chase said five people were inside the home during the explosion, and one person was seriously hurt.

Crews believe the explosion started inside the home, and Chase said there is significant damage throughout the building.

“It was an explosion where there were a few spot fires left in the home following the explosion, not heavy fire damage but there is significant structural damage,” Chase said.

The cause of the explosion is still under investigation, but the fire chief said he does not believe this was a gas-related explosion.

Code enforcement crews will be evaluating the property Monday morning.
