BFD: Explosion, fire in New North End

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. - A man was hospitalized with burns on his arms and upper body after a fire and explosion at a condo complex in the New North End.

Fire officials received multiple calls just before noon Sunday about an explosion and a man on fire at the Laundromat at the Little Eagle Bay. The man was reportedly pouring lacquer thinner on a varnished floor  when a dryer may have sparked the explosion.  

"The investigation is still in progress. We'll list it as an undetermined fire for now simply because the investigation is not complete yet. There are no suspicious circumstances in this incident. There was minimal damage and the property can be reoccupied," said Burlington Fire Dept Deputy Chief David Roberts.

Police did not identify the fire victim, who was being treated for moderate burns.
