WAUSHARA COUNTY (WAOW) - A propane leak in the basement of a rural Waushara County home caused an explosion early Tuesday that blew off a garage door, the sheriff's department said. No one was hurt.

The force of the blast propelled the door onto nearby state Highway 73 and a vehicle hit it, authorities said.

Investigators said the propane leaked in a basement area under the garage and what ignited it remained under investigation.

The explosion occurred about 1:30 a.m. at the home on Highway 73 north of Cypress Road in the Town of Marion.
