BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 70-year-old man has died after a propane tank exploded in his Bluffton home.

Bluffton Police Department spokeswoman Joy Nelson told the Island Packet of Hilton Head (https://bit.ly/2n0OR31 ) that the explosion around 7 p.m. Sunday is being investigated by her department and the State Law Enforcement Division.

Beaufort County Coroner Ed Allen identified the dead man as Joseph Michaelcewicz and says an autopsy will be conducted later this week.

Nelson says Michaelcewicz’s wife was home but not hurt in the explosion.
