TEXAS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- One person is dead after an explosion inside of a hunting stand in Wayne County.
State troopers say 81-year-old Gregory Scheer of Florida was hunting in a wooded area on a friend's property near Honesdale.
According to the property owner, he heard a blast and went to check on Scheer.
Police believe Scheer's portable propane heater possibly malfunctioned or was connected improperly causing the explosion.
A fire marshal has been called in to investigate after the deadly blast, and an autopsy is scheduled for next week in Wayne County.
