BGE said a gas leak does not appear to have caused the explosion of a home Saturday night in Essex.

The home located on Crafton Road was on fire before the explosion that happened around 11 p.m. One man was hospitalized for burn injuries.

Officials said they have heard from several neighbors that there was a foul smell in the area Saturday.

BGE told CBS Baltimore that crews did not detect gas readings when they canvassed the area.
