Police officials are now investigating a probable house explosion in North Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut, Wednesday night, said a law enforcement officer. A fire then burned other structures at the property; they were "mostly extinguished" by Thursday morning, police said. Footage from local news stations shows officers lying in stretchers being loaded into ambulances.

Police officers used a loudspeaker to ask the man to come out of the house.

A total of 6 officers were also reported injured in the explosion with non-life threatening injuries. More than 30 New Haven SWAT and Bomb Squad officers were assisting in the standoff. Additional police rushed to the scene as the fire raged, and sounds of smaller explosions also were heard.
