Home explosion rocks El Sereno neighborhood
The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived at the home in the 2900 block of Lowell Avenue shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday to find a 1,200-square-foot, one-story home with broken windows and debris strewn about the property. Firefighters found a 29-year-old man, who had second- and third-degree burns to more than 35% of his body, including his head, face, upper torso, hands and arms. The man's wife and his daughter were also in the home but were unharmed, officials said.
The cause of the blast remains under investigation, with fire investigators and Los Angeles police looking into what happened.
