Investigators from the Sandwich Fire Department and the Massachusetts Fire Marshal’s Office continue to look for the cause of an early morning explosion and fire that sent one man to the hospital with burns on Thanksgiving.

Joseph Kuzava, 50, is in Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston with burns suffered when his home on Chaucer Street in Sandwich exploded at about 4 a.m. Thanksgiving day.

The investigation may center on the recent installation of a gas water heater. The house was destroyed in the fire.
