MATTAWAN, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Van Buren County man is in the hospital Wednesday morning after an explosion and fire at his home.

The fire broke out just after 7:00 Tuesday night on M-43 at a home right next to Gene the Pumpkin Man's farm.

The fire chief tells us there were four people in the home. One of them suffered first or second degree burns.

"Apparently he was working in the garage, just went back inside, heard small explosion,” said Chief Terron McLean of the Mattawan Fire Dept.

The chief says they were able to knock the fire down quickly but the home suffered significant damage.

We're also told that a firefighter was injured. We're still working to find out the extent of those injuries.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
