Lewis Willson is still recovering in the burn unit at the Northern Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, but this afternoon he is in "good" condition.

That's an improvement from fair condition 10 days ago, Willson was seriously injured in the explosion. Montrose fire officials say there was a propane gas leak in Willson's home when he lit a cigarette and ignited the explosion.

His home is a total loss.
