Rock Island, IL- Rock Island Fire Marshal Greg Marty says the explosion inside Vintage Rose Jewelry and Antiques was the result of a propane explosion. Marty says it was caused by equipment being used at the time for jewelry repair. Construction crews are currently shoring up two unstable walls inside the building. It’s unknown at this time whether they will be able to repair the building.
Vintage Rose and a store next door, Tim’s Corner, are closed until further notice.
