One Injured in Propane Explosion at Moorhead Sanford

Posted:

One person is injured after an explosion at the new Sanford clinic in Moorhead.

The propane blast caused extensive interior damage near the lobby and some structural.

The clinic was set to open March 3rd - in one just week.

A spokesperson for the clinic says now he isn't sure when it will open to the public - weeks, months, he wouldn't say.

Just after 1 this afternoon crews responded to the new medical facility - just off of I-94.

Tory Jacobson, with the Moorhead Police Department confirms that one person was injured - but not seriously.

Jeff Hoss with Sanford, denied that accusation saying there were no injuries.

The blast caused damages in the lobby waiting area

The explosion was limited to a very small area adjacent to the elevator shaft. There is a secondary shaft that is covered in case of growth or expansion in the future and that's where the explosion came from.

No damage estimates are being released at this time.

We're waiting for a call back from the Fire Marshall - as to the cause of the explosion.
