A northeast Harris County explosion seriously injured a man. The incident happened on North Houston Avenue near Townsen Boulevard. Deputies say the man was trying to repair an external propane tank on the side of his mobile home when it exploded in his face.

He suffered second- and third-degree burns.

The blast was so powerful it blew the roof off the mobile home. The fire also spread to the mobile home next door.
