BRIGGS, Okla.—A man is critically injured after his home explodes Saturday night.

The explosion was so powerful it completely destroyed the man’s home and could be felt five miles away.

Debris from the home was scattered up in the trees and even littered a nearby highway.

Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives arrived in Cherokee County to investigate.

Officials believe an undetected leak in a propane tank is to blame for the blast.
