A 2-year-old boy and his father were both in critical condition in Denver hospitals following the explosion on Sunday.
According to KKTV-TV, one of the men, who is a mechanic, was using a propane space heater as he worked on a vehicle in his garage.
Firefighters say the man took a fuel tank out of his vehicle, causing the explosion.
