JETMORE, Kan. (AP) - The state fire marshal is investigating an explosion at a southwest Kansas home that left two men severely injured.

The blast happened just after 6 p.m. Sunday in rural Hodgeman County, south of Jetmore.

KWCH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1sC4EVq ) the two men are a father and son who were flown to a hospital in Wichita, about 140 miles away. Both were in critical condition Monday.

The cause is under investigation, but the Hodgeman County sheriff says a propane tank is suspected. The house was destroyed.
