Home Explosion

The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office is reporting a serious home accident that occurred just last week. It happened at approximately 7:06 p.m. on November 14 when Sanilac County Central Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call from a subject reporting a cabin explosion with injured persons on hunting property off of Ubly Road near Argyle. The Sheriff’s Office responded to the area along with the Argyle Fire Department and located the property in the 4200 block of Ubly Road in Argyle Township. 

The initial investigation has determined that a 30 year old male from Sandusky and a 43 year old male from Lynn Township were attempting to light a propane heating stove inside a cabin when an explosion had occurred. It was reported that one of the men was blown through the wall of the cabin and then outside. The other was able to escape from the cabin. The cabin was overcome by fire and was a total loss when emergency personnel arrived on scene.


The two victims were transported to Deckerville Hospital by Sanilac EMS for treatment of their injuries. A third victim, 13 years of age who was outside on the porch of the cabin during the time of the explosion, escaped with minor injuries and was not transported by EMS.
