House explosion kills one

Posted: Updated:

One person is dead after a house explosion in Tuscola County. Investigators said it could be several days before they can identify the person buried under the rubble.

The exact cause of the explosion is still under investigation. The home was located in Arbela Township. Neighbors tell TV5 a man lived there with his son. The 9-year-old boy is safe.

People in the area report hearing a loud noise around 1 p.m. Friday.

"At first I thought it was gunfire, but then I realized it wasn't that kind of noise," said nearby resident Dale Cleland.
