MONROE COUNTY, Pa. — One man was flown to a hospital after an early morning fire in Monroe County.

Crews were called to a home on Maple Lane in Barrett Township around 5 a.m. Tuesday.

The fire chief tells us a shed caught fire next to the home. Something inside exploded when the homeowner went outside to try and put it out. He was burned.

Flames spread to the home.

A state police fire marshal is looking for the cause.
