BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - Cascade Natural Gas has identified the worker injured in the motel explosion in Bremerton, Washington, as 59-year-old Larry Jennings.
The Bremerton man is listed in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Jennings was injured Tuesday in a natural gas explosion at a Washington state motel. He works for Cascade Natural Gas and was responding to a report of a gas leak at the time of the blast.
Police say they are investigating whether a person leaving the motel could have damaged a gas line before the explosion destroyed part of the building.
