ZEELAND, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a man was killed after a propane explosion inside a camper in Zeeland.

The victim was identified as 59-year-old Bert Monger Jr., who was alone in the camper Monday afternoon when the explosion happened.

McIntosh County Sheriff Laurie Spitzer says Monger was transported first to a Bismarck hospital and then to a Minnesota burn center, where he died.

Spitzer says Monger worked in construction in the Zeeland area.
