Explosion destroys part of Raleigh County business


CRAB ORCHARD, W.Va. (WVVA) A small business owner in Raleigh County is looking for answers after an explosion Sunday destroyed part of his business.

A side building of Egnor Monument was destroyed after two propane tanks exploded, said owner Larry Hodges in an interview with WVVA News on Tuesday.

He said the call came in around 11:30 p.m. that his building was on fire. Hodges said four propane tanks are still missing.

“I think it was done on purpose. I don’t have any electricity to the building. Someone had to set it.”

According to Hodges, someone also tried to break into main building through cracking the glass to the door.

Right now, the Sophia Police Dept. and State Fire Marshal are investigating.
