New York State Police confirm that one man died in the explosion and that it was not drug related.
State police also tell us the man died from handling a home-made explosive device. As to what kind of device exactly, they could not say.
The explosion occurred in the home’s garage on state line road at around 1:50 p.m.
It was first called in as a “woodstove explosion,” with the Lindley Fire Department and the State Police responding to the call.
