GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Two people were sent to the hospital after crews responded to reports of an explosion taking place inside a home.
Preliminary reports say there was a detonation of ammunition inside the home, causing an explosion which shattered several windows and injured two people after getting hit with shrapnel.
"On arrival [crews] found that there were two people injured, no fire on their arrival, they had some sort of explosion on the back having to do with some ammunition but we're not exactly sure what," said Mike Page with the Grand Junction Fire Department.
The people inside the home were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A bomb technician was called to evaluate the scene.
