A home explosion near San Bernardino kills one person and hospitalizes two others

One person was killed and two others were injured Wednesday evening in an explosion at a home in Muscoy, near San Bernardino. 

The report of the explosion came in about 6 p.m. in the 3300 block of Gray Street, said Jack Dejong, a spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department. 

The explosion caused severe structural damage to the home, which was a secondary house behind another home, Dejong said.

A man was found wandering nearby with critical inures and a woman was found in rubble with critical injuries, Dejong said. Both were taken to a hospital. 

The body of another man was located under rubble, but emergency crews have not been able to get to it for removal, Dejong said. 

The cause of the explosion is being investigated.

Police declared the area a crime scene, Dejong said.
