KLINE TOWNSHIP, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — An explosion woke one community before sunrise, Tuesday morning. The blast rocked a normally quiet neighborhood in Kline Township.

State Police say they are now investigating this as an attempted homicide after they say an explosive device was detonated.

“This morning around 5:24, we received a 911 call of an explosion at 3 Center Street,” said Pennsylvania State Trooper David Beohm.

Troopers and fire crews immediately responded, finding damage to two buildings and vehicles, and one person injured.

“Our Frackville station that we handle, the Major Case Team has been activated from Troop L. So that brings troopers from up to all five stations that we have in Troop L,” said Trooper Beohm.

A bomb squad was called to the scene and was seen collecting evidence of the blast as investigators worked to find out what caused it.

Fire Chief Leshko says he heard a loud bang minutes before he got called for a reported explosion.

“I do know ya know that that explosion was heard cause I live probably a mile from here and I was getting ready for work and I heard it,” said Chief Robert Leshko, McAdoo Fire Company.

Officials tell us the man injured sustained non-life threatening and was taken to the hospital. State police say they are now investigating, but they say there is no current threat to the public.

The scene has since cleared but on the ground, there is still a large amount of shattered glass.
