Two adults were injured – one seriously – after an explosion inside a Westminster home Tuesday afternoon, according to a tweet from the fire department.

The explosion happened at a residence in the 5700 block of West 74th Place. There was no associated fire, the Westminster Fire Department said. Sky9 video showed fire crews on the scene and a window that had apparently been blown out from the second story of the home.
