CASS COUNTY, Ind. — A home explosion in Cass County leaves one man critically injured and his home a pile of debris.

Deputies with the Cass County Sheriff’s Offices responded to a report of an explosion at Road 600 East and County Road 800 North near Twelve Mile.

When they arrived, 63-year-old Paul Ulerick was found beneath the debris and fire.

The sheriff’s offices says Ulerick was working in his basement when the explosion leveled his home.
