Authorities say one man was seriously injured after an explosion involving a furnace at a Cass County home. 

The Cass County Sheriff's Office said first responders were called just before noon Wednesday afternoon on a report of an explosion at a home in Remer. 


When deputies arrived, they learned a man had been working on a propane furnace when an explosion occurred. 

The man was the only person inside of the home when the explosion happened. 

The sheriff's office said he was airlifted to a hospital in the Twin Cities for burns and serious injuries. 

The incident is under investigation by the Cass County Sheriff's Office and the Minnesota State Fire Marshal's Office.
