    Vermont State Police say a propane leak likely caused a home explosion in Worcester that injured two people.

    The explosion and house fire was reported Sunday morning.

    The Times Argus reports 39-year-old David Garneau and 30-year-old Miranda Bador were at home at the time and suffered burns.

    Garneau was treated and released, but Bador was transferred to the University of Vermont Medical Center for treatment for second-degree burns.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    The explosion is not considered suspicious or intentional, but the cause is officially undetermined due to the severe destruction to the home.
