One dead after explosion, fire, at Vermillion home
01/24/2020

(KMZA)--One person was found dead following an explosion and fire early Friday morning at a home in the Marshall County community of Vermillion.

According to the Marshall County Sheriff's Office, emergency crews were called to the home in the 300 block of East 5th Street just after 7:00 after several people called 911 to report an explosion.

When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they found the home fully engulfed in flames.

The Sheriff's Office says the fire was brought under about three hours later. A search of the burned-out home then led to the discovery of the body.

The Kansas State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating cause of the explosion and fire.

Authorities have not released the identity of the victim.

The Sheriff's Office said the body has been sent for an autopsy.
