Explosion in Durango Injures Firefighters

An explosion in Durango rocks three businesses and injures at least three fire firefighters.

It happened just before 2:00 Friday afternoon on Main Avenue. Officials say a fire apparently started in the kitchen of a local restaurant and then spread to surrounding businesses. Then about 40 minutes later the front of the restaurant and two other businesses blew out.

The fire was contained at about 6:00 p.m., no word on the condition of those injured.
