    MORRISVILLE Police say three Vermont firefighters were injured when a tank of welding gas exploded during a fire that destroyed a home and art gallery in Morrisville.

    The fire was reported late Friday evening and when firefighters arrived the Foundry Street building was engulfed in flames.

    The Morrisville Fire Department called for assistance from departments in Hyde Park, North Hyde Park and Elmore.

    The firefighters injured by the explosion of the acetylene tank were treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital.

    The building was considered a total loss.

    Investigators concluded that the fire originated on the back side of the residence where tools and other items were stored. The exact cause of the fire is undetermined.
