Backyard building explodes, killing Maine man

The Associated Press

NEW LIMERICK — The Maine Fire Marshal's Office says it's unlikely that the cause of an explosion and fire that killed a New Limerick man will be determined.

Seventy-nine-year-old Budsen Anderson died Wednesday afternoon when the storage building he was in blew up in his backyard.

Authorities say Anderson was working on lawn equipment just before the explosion, which leveled the building.
