NEW HOLLAND, Pa. (AP) - Fire officials in central Pennsylvania say a man was badly burned in a welding accident.

Heavy black smoke could be seen billowing Tuesday afternoon from a building on a farm in Earl Township, Lancaster County.

Garden Spot Fire Rescue Chief Larry Martin said a man was in a workshop when a spark from a welding torch hit an open can of gasoline, causing an explosion and fire.

Martin said the man is hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns. His condition was not immediately available.
