Couple uninjured after central Ill. home explodes


Clinton (AP) -- A central Illinois couple was uninjured when an apparent explosion struck their home near Clinton Lake.


Homeowner Steve Riddle tells The Pantagraph that the blast "just about blew us out of bed."


Clinton Fire Chief Shawn Milton says it will be a few days before officials know the cause of the explosion.


Firefighters from a half-dozen departments responded to the ensuing Sunday morning blaze. That included firefighters from Clinton, Farmer City, Kenney, Maroa, Wapella and Weldon. The Red Cross offered assistance for emergency responders.
