Six people were injured after an explosion at a home on Jenny Lind Street Monday morning, Sept. 10.

Easton Deputy Police Chief Allen Krajcik said four Stonehill students were injured in the blast and two gas company workers were also seriously hurt. Two other students who reside in the home were not there at the time.

Rob Gilbreth, a junior at Stonehill, said he lived in the home with his roommate in one apartment and four other people lived in the other one. Gilbreth said he was at the gym at the time of the explosion, but came back when he heard what happened.

The Rev. Mark Cregan, president of Stonehill College, said he, Gilbreth and another school official were on their way to see the students in the hospital.
