CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a woman was found dead following an explosion and fire at a central Pennsylvania residence.
The blast was reported shortly before 10 a.m. Friday in downtown Clearfield seconds before the fire occurred. Police originally reported all four occupants accounted for but said surveillance footage led them to believe that one woman was still inside.
The Clearfield County coroner identified the victim as 34-year-old Shanna Carlson of Clearfield. Coroner Kim Shaffer-Snyder said the cause and manner of death are pending lab test results that will take about four to eight weeks.
District Attorney Bill Shaw said natural gas to the apartment was shut off in July. The cause of the explosion and fire remain under investigation.
