SAND BEACH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say an investigation is ongoing into a weekend Michigan home explosion and fire that killed a woman and injured her adult daughter.

The Huron County sheriff’s office says the explosion happened Saturday night in Sand Beach Township, about 105 miles (169 kilometers) northeast of Detroit.

The sheriff’s office says 69-year-old Sally E. Pullen was trapped inside and died, and her 50-year-old daughter Elizabeth A. Sarnowski was ejected from the house by the explosion. Sarnowski was taken to a hospital for treatment. Firefighters were unable to reach the trapped woman for nearly two hours.
