    Man hospitalized after outhouse explosion Tuesday
    The Dominion Post

    A man was hospitalized for burns after he lit a cigarette in a portable outhouse and the outhouse exploded.

    MECCA said that at about 9:40 a.m. Tuesday, Monongalia Emergency Medical Services responded to a burn call at the Clay-Battelle Community Health Center on the Mason-Dixon Highway in Blacksville.

    The spokesperson said a man, whose identity is not being released, was inside a portable outhouse when the explosion occurred.

    The methane gases inside the outhouse didn't "take too kindly" to the lit cigarette, the spokesperson said.

    A Clay-Battelle Health Center spokeswoman said the man drove himself to the clinic.

    Mon EMS workers said the man was not severely hurt but they could not comment specifically on his injuries or release his name due to privacy policies.

    Mon EMS transported the man from the health center to Ruby Memorial Hospital.

    Talking

    This reminds me of a call I attended when I first joined the service, A lady had cleaned some paint brushes in gasoline and then threw the gas down the toilet and flushed it, The husband came home from work, went into the toilet, sat down, threw his cigarette into the pan, the result was an explosion that blew the porcelain toilet bowl into pieces, some of the shards caused serious injury to the nether regions of the man.
