VERSAILLES — An 83-year-old man has died following an accidental explosion outside his rural southern Indiana home, authorities said.
Kenneth Hayes was cutting on a fuel tank Tuesday outside his home near Versailles when an explosion occurred, investigators with the Indiana State Fire Marshal said.
The resulting fire ignited a nearby garage.
Hayes died from his injuries, and the official cause of death is pending an autopsy, the Ripley County Coroner’s Office said.
A news release from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security didn't say what caused the explosion or what Hayes was cutting.
