Idaho lawmaker's wife hurt in gun room explosion
BURLEY, ID -- Fire officials say the wife of an Idaho lawmaker was injured when a room that they had converted into a gun safe exploded.
The Times-News reports that Amy Wood, the wife of state Rep. Fred Wood, was taken by air ambulance to a Utah hospital with second-degree burns on her face and hands after the explosion Saturday night in southern Idaho. Fred Wood, R-Burley, told the newspaper that he wasn't injured in the blast.
Burley Fire Chief Keith Martin said the couple was eating dinner when the explosion occurred. Amy Wood was on the back patio -- which is directly over the gun room -- and the blast apparently caused the slab to collapse into the room below.
The cause of the explosion is not yet known.
