OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Officials say a man has suffered serious injuries after a fireworks explosion in Thurston County.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/29d66a0 ) that fire crews responded Saturday night to find a man who had been setting off fireworks in PVC pipe. Fire Capt. Lanette Dyers says the man, believed to be in his 40s, had thought his fuse went out and went to relight the firework when the pipe exploded.

He was taken to a Seattle hospital with serious injuries to his hand, face, legs and groin.

Dyer says another man was also injured but declined medical attention.
