CLE ELUM, Wash. -- A woman was burned in an explosion that destroyed her Cle Elum home Tuesday afternoon.

Fire officials say it appears a propane tank exploded, blasting the woman out of her home.

Firefighters arrived to find her buried under the ruins of what used to be her home. She was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of second degree burns but her exact condition is not known.

Investigators are still looking into what sparked the explosion.
