Man Found Dead After Explosion, Fire At Princeton Home

PRINCETON (CBS) – A man was found dead hours after an explosion and fire at his home in central Massachusetts late Thursday morning.

Firefighters were called to the house on Ball Hill Road in Princeton around 10:30 a.m.  When they arrived the home was engulfed in flames and thick smoke.

A 61-year-old resident was missing for several hours, but authorities later found him dead in the home.  They have not released his name or a cause of death.

Neighbors told WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi he was a truck driver.

The cause of the fire does not appear to be suspicious.

No other information is available at this point in the investigation.
