THOMAS - Five construction workers were injured, four of them severely, in an apparent natural gas explosion at a home construction site near the Canaan Valley Resort, State Police said Monday.
The blast occurred about 10:20 a.m. in a housing development in the Flat Ridge area, near the popular ski resort, said State Police Sgt. R.L. Stump.
The five workers were building a home and somehow ignited a gas leak, Stump said. The state fire marshal's office is investigating.
