MINER, MO (KFVS) - A woman and her two dogs are safe after a camping trailer exploded Friday night at Hinton Park in Miner.

Miner Chief of Police Roger Moore says a propane leak could be the cause of the explosion shortly after 8 p.m.

The explosion pushed out the walls of the 28 foot camping trailer eight to 10 inches.  Moore says nothing was burned inside the trailer.

He says the owners had smelled propane in the trailer all day long and that the woman is lucky to come out without injuries.
