An explosion and fire that damaged a duplex and seriously injured two people in January, in Hallsville, has been ruled accidental according to the Missouri State Fire Marshal’s Office.

A report on KOMU-TV indicates the investigator believes that the explosion was caused possibly by a gun discharging into a propane tank and the propane tank reacting with the open flame of a candle.

The report also described two round holes similar in shape and size to the entry and exit of a round from a handgun that were found on the propane cylinder.
