Firefighters say a house near Sedro-Woolley, Wash., exploded in flames Friday night after a car crashed into a propane tank at the residence.
The unidentified driver was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of burns.
The Washington State Patrol says the male homeowner was in the house but escaped without injury.
Troopers say the driver is being investigated for DUI. They tell the Skagit Valley Herald that the car might have been a Ford Mustang but it was so badly burned the make and model were nearly unrecognizable.
