Propane Leak Blamed For Fatal Fire/Explosion Near Edison, Neb

EDISON, Neb. (AP) – Authorities in south-central Nebraska say a propane leak is believed to be the cause of an explosion and fire that fatally inured an 83-year old woman at her rural residence near Edison last Friday.

Furnas County Attorney Morgan Farquhar identified the victim as Alberta Leising. Firefighters from Edison and Oxford put out the fire at the property northeast of Edison before flames could spread from an outbuilding to other structures.
