No other homes in the area were damaged.
Seven people were inside the home at the time of the explosion.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene, one was flown to UofL Hospital for treatment, one was taken by ambulance to UofL Hospital, three were treated at Hardin Memorial Hospital and one person was not injured.
