Two hurt after home explodes near Appleton

CALUMET COUNTY – Two people were hurt after a home exploded near Appleton Wednesday morning, according to WBAY-TV.

The explosion happened about 8 a.m. on Fire Lane 12 in the Town of Harrison, which is on the north end of Lake Winnebago.

The owner was not home at the time of the explosion, according to Lt. Mark Wiegert of the Calumet County Sheriff’s Office. Two females in nearby homes were injured. Those injuries are not considered life threatening, Wiegert says.

People reportedly heard the explosion in Appleton, Darboy, Wrightstown, Kaukauna and Hilbert.

“Shook our house in Kaukauna. Thought it was a sonic boom,” said WBAY Facebook fan Craig Barker.
