Kentucky State Police say one person is dead, and two others are critically injured after an explosion at a home in Breckinridge County.

It happened on Camp Green Shores Lane in McDaniels Saturday. Police say the explosion looks to have been the result of a gas leak inside the home.

One person was pronounced dead the scene. The victim's name has not been released. The body was taken to the Kentucky Medical Examiner's Office in Louisville for an autopsy.

Two others in the home, 29-year-old Joshua Lucas and 56-year-old Timothy Randall, were flown to University of Louisville Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the explosion and gas leak is still under investigation. Police do not believe foul play was involved.
