Details are sparse as a Division of Fire Safety investigation continues following a home explosion in Jamestown last week.

The explosion, which took place around 6 p.m. last Wednesday, left one person injured at the scene, who was then flown to the University of Missouri hospital in Columbia to be treated for burns and possible internal injuries, according to Moniteau County Sheriff Tony Wheatley. The house was a total loss due to the damage.

Wheatley said last week that the sheriff's office was on the scene mostly to assist EMS workers and with helicopter landing to fly the victim from the scene to the hospital.

Mike O'Connell, Communications Director for the Missouri Department of Public Safety, said Friday there is still very little known as a result of the Division of Fire Safety investigation. O'Connell said due to the extent of the damage, the cause and origin of the home explosion remained undetermined as of Friday afternoon, and the individual injured in the blast remains hospitalized.
