HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in Hoover are investigating an explosion and fire at a house that killed at least one person.

Hoover police spokesman Jim Coker tells Al.com authorities are unsure of what exploded inside the house Sunday morning and the department’s bomb squad wasn’t immediately able to enter the home because the fire had yet to be extinguished.

Additional details on the explosion weren’t immediately available and the victim’s identity hasn’t been released.
