WBAY-TV reports that Oneida police Chief Rich Van Boxtel says the incident is being treated as a criminal investigation until authorities discover “all the facts and circumstances.” Oneida police didn’t immediately identify the female who died.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports the blast happened shortly before 7:30 a.m. on Saturday. Sgt. Nathan Borman of the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department says early indications suggest the cause of the explosion was a gas leak.
Borman says an adult man has been flown to a local hospital with significant burns. The man’s condition wasn’t immediately known.
Fire and law enforcement officials are investigating.
