Explosion In Evergreen

Posted: Updated:
EVERGREEN -

A camper explosion in Evergreen Wednesday night, October 23, put three people in critical condition.

Kalispell and Evergreen fire crews arrived at the home on Rose Crossing a little after 5:00 p.m. Wednesday to see the camper parked in the front yard in flames.

No names have been released, but according to authorities, a woman and a boy were taken to a Kalispell hospital, while a man was flown to a Seattle hospital.

All three were inside the camper when it exploded.

The man who witnessed the explosion and owns the land the camper was parked on points to propane as the culprit.

"It must have just been venting off in there and all it takes is a spark," said George, who did not want his last name published.

The day after the incident, the land owner and some relatives of the victims are cleaning up the rubble and trying to salvage what is not charred.
