Posted: Updated:
MOSINEE (WKOW) -- A Liquid propane tank explodes inside a Mosinee duplex.

One woman was hurt. She was taken to a hospital, but her condition is unknown.

The blast blew out doors, windows and one wall. Fire officials say a small leak in the LP tank likely caused the explosion, but its unknown what the tank was being used for.

Mosinee Fire Chief Josh Klug says, "It was about a 20 to 25 pound LP tank, similar to what you would find on a stove."

People are living in the other side of the duplex.

Authorities say there was no damage done to their home and they were allowed back in Wednesday night.
