CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say that a disconnected gas line caused an explosion at a Cedar Rapids apartment complex in April.

Cedar Rapids Public Safety Communications Coordinator Greg Buelow said Thursday that a gas line was disconnected from a gas water heater, which led to the explosion and fire at the Hardwick Apartments on April 19. Authorities say neighbors suppressed flames and pulled a man from an apartment moments after the explosion.

The man was taken to a hospital for treatment.
