6 hospitalized after explosion, fire at Stanton home

STANTON, Calif.

The Orange County Fire Authority said a single-story home on the 10000 block of Sycamore Street was engulfed in flames and smoke when units arrived at the scene Friday night.

Six adult victims, all from the same family, were rushed to two area hospitals. Ten others were displaced.

Investigators said residents were apparently using gasoline to clean up after removing carpeting and the fumes reached a pilot light, triggering the explosion and fire.
