Sheriff: Propane explosion kills one, injures another

MACKINAC COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- A man died and a woman remains hospitalized after a fire at a home on Bois Blanc Island.

Someone in Cheboygan reported seeing smoke coming from the island around 11 a.m. Sunday, according to Mackinac County Sheriff's Deputies.

Investigators believe an accidental propane explosion caused a cabin on the island to catch fire.

The owners, Kevin McCormack and Caroline Klautky-McCormack, were both injured in the fire and flown to a burn unit downstate for treatment.

Kevin McCormack later died at the hospital, deputies said.

Caroline is still in the hospital and is expected to recover, according to deputies.
