A state police fire marshal is trying to determine the cause of an explosion that destroyed a two-story house on Kushequa Avenue near Mount Jewett Thursday afternoon.
Cpl. Greg Agosti say 68-year-old Kenneth Bernhard of Corry was inside the home at the time of the explosion but was able to get himself out of the rubble after the house was blown off its foundation and partially collapsed.
Bernhard was flown to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
Damage is estimated at $100,000.
