Firefighters among 6 hurt in duplex explosion

Two firefighters and a civilian remain hospitalized after a duplex explosion in Milwaukee that also injured three others.

Milwaukee Fire Department Assistant Chief Paul Conway said three firefighters have been released from the hospital but a battalion chief and captain remained there in stable condition Monday.

He said they have second- and third-degree burns but are in good spirits and are recovering. A man was also burned and he was hospitalized Monday in critical condition.

Fire officials were responding to a report of a gas leak at a duplex when the building exploded Sunday night. Conway says they are still investigating the cause.
