2 dead in western Pennsylvania house explosion

By: WJAC Web Staff and The Associated Press

DARLINGTON, Pa. -- Authorities say a husband and wife were killed in an early-morning house explosion in western Pennsylvania.

Emergency dispatchers in Beaver County say the blast was reported at about 4 a.m. Tuesday in South Beaver Township, a rural area about 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

The Beaver County Coroner's Office says autopsies are planned Tuesday on 74-year-old Ray Trautvetter and 69-year-old Janet Trautvetter. Police say they were inside the ranch-style home at the time.

Fire crews were initially kept away from the scene because of smaller explosions that police believe to have been ammunition going off, but they were later able to extinguish the blaze.

The fire marshal is investigating the cause, which Richman said police believe "probably is going to be gas-related." He said the home used propane for fuel.
