State police: 6 officers injured in explosion

House Explodes In North Haven; Reports Of Injuries

An explosion at a CT house where police and SWAT officers were engaged in a standoff with a barricaded suspect caused a large fire and left several people injured, according to accounts from the scene.

Authorities are investigating a possible explosion in North Haven, Connecticut, according to a law enforcement official. None of the officers suffered life-threatening injuries.

North Haven First Selectman Michael Freda says officers responded to the home Wednesday afternoon and were trying to coax the man out when the explosion happened near the back of the house.

"It's quite surprising", Freda said. They were taken to Yale New Haven hospital, but their exact condition and that of the suspect and his family wasn't immediately known. The man's wife had escaped before the blast.

The roads surrounding the residence remain closed off.

Firefighters worked to get the blaze under control more than an hour later.
