Mobile home explosion near Princeton kills 2, leaves 'mass destruction'

PRINCETON TOWNSHIP, MINN. - Two people were killed in an explosion that rocked an occupied home north of Princeton, Minn., before dawn Tuesday and was heard more than 20 miles away, the Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office said.

The blast at the double-wide mobile home in the 8200 block of 52nd Street prompted several 911 calls shortly before 4 a.m., said chief sheriff's deputy Aaron Evenson.

Evenson said the "single-family residence ... appeared to have exploded with a large debris field, which was partially on fire."
