BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — A man was taken to the University of Utah Hospital Burn Center Wednesday evening after an explosion in Box Elder County.
The explosion occurred at S&M Diesel Service, a diesel truck repair shop and towing service, in Brigham City.
Firefighters told FOX 13 someone was using a plasma cutter when they hit a fuel line, causing the explosion.
“That’s the tough thing about small towns, you generally know the people that you`re going to help and try and take care of,” said Corey Barton, Box Elder County Fire Department.
One other person suffered a less serious injury that also required hospitalization.
The damage is estimated at approximately $500,000.
