The Wasatch County Fire District is reporting that an explosion Sunday destroyed a cabin in the Timber Lakes development—the second such instance in less than a month in the same neighborhood.

The Fire District said that the explosion occurred Sunday afternoon, in the development east of Heber.

They said no one was in the home and no one was injured in the explosion.

Fire personnel reported that the roof of the structure had collapsed by the time they arrived. Debris from the explosion was blown at least 200 feet around the cabin.

Salt Lake news reports say investigators are focusing on a propane tank as the cause of the blast.

In mid-February, a woman went into another Timber Lakes cabin to investigate a gas smell. An explosion occurred shortly afterward. Two men who rushed into the burning home rescued the woman, who was trapped under a beam and critically injured.
