LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — Firefighters responded to reports of an explosion at a duplex in Larimer County early Saturday.

According to Poudre Fire Authority spokesperson Patrick Love, reports of a possible explosion at a duplex in the 500 block of N. Bryan Avenue came in around 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

Crews arrived on scene to find evidence of an explosion.

There was also a fire in one of the bedrooms, which firefighters said they got under control quickly.

Love confirmed that one person had been transported to Medical Center of the Rockies with burns. The victim was later transferred to University of Colorado Hospital.

Two more may be injured, but Love was not able to confirm this.

He added that the cause is still under investigation, but there was no indication of anything illegal — he stressed that the fire and explosion were not related to hash oil cooking.

An investigator, who remained on scene for cleanup, estimated the damage to the duplex to be around $150,000.
