One neighboring homeowner suffered minor injuries when one-side of duplex exploded in Fond du Lac this morning. That person was taken to St. Agnes Hospital in Fond du Lac. That neighboring home is too unstable for investigators to get into it.

Division Chief of Fire Prevention Troy Haase says there was a lot of debris from the explosion in the area of Twilight Trails and Moonlight Lane. He says one half of the duplex is completely gone. The duplex was unoccupied and was under construction.

Haase says there was a small fire, but firefighters quickly put it out. The explosion occurred at 4:54 a.m. Alliant Energy crews were called to the scene to shut off power.
