Posted: Updated:

A gas explosion led to a fire, injuring one person Wednesday night in the Bustle section of Northeast Philadelphia.

SkyFOX was over a home on the 2000 block of Foster Street at around 8:15 p.m.

Investigators say a man was cleaning out his oven, which may have been left on, when he lit a cigarette.

He was taken to Temple University Hospital with second-degree burns to his face and his hands.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to get the flames under control.
