Garage Explosion Seriously Injures Man

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police and fire officials are investigating the
cause of an explosion in the garage of a northwest Las Vegas
condominium that left a man with what authorities called "severe
traumatic injuries."

Las Vegas fire spokesman Tim Szymanski (zim-ANN'-skee) says
neighbors reported hearing two blasts shortly after 10 p.m.
Wednesday at a complex near Washington Avenue and Cimarron Road.

Firefighters found the man inside a two-story townhouse-style
condo bleeding severely, and paramedics took him to University
Medical Center.

Szymanski says the man told investigators he may have been
working with a torch in the garage before the explosion, which
investigators say caused about $20,000 in damage.
