A man suffered burn injuries after an explosion at a Santa Ana house caused a partial collapse Wednesday night, Orange County Fire Authority officials said.

The incident was reported about 8 p.m. at 2710 N. Townley St., OCFA Capt. Larry Kurtz said.

Kurtz initially said the person transported from the scene with burns was female, but the Fire Authority’s Twitter account later described the patient as male, and video from the scene appeared to show a man being loaded into an ambulance.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation, OCFA stated on Twitter.

Firefighters at the scene were attempting to shore up the home.
