Woolstock, IA- WHOTV – An explosion of a propane tank near a home in Woolstock has injured at least one. There were two children also in the home.
The explosion happened around 7:15 this morning in the small community on the Wright and Hamilton county line. Woolstock is midway between Eagle Grove and Webster City.
The State Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the explosion. There are no reports of the condition of the victims injured in this morning.
This isn’t the first explosion to happen in the small town of Woolstock. Two years ago, a grain elevator in the middle of town blew up. That explosion killed one man and seriously injured two others working at the elevator.
Investigators say bearings inside the structure ran dry causing the bearing to run on metal. It created heat and ignited the grain dust.
