A trailer home near Hauser Lake was destroyed in a fire after a reported explosion Tuesday night. 

Two neighbors called in a house explosion just before 8 p.m. in the 4800 block of Deal Lane northeast of Helena, said Capt. Alan Hughes of the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff's Office.

A man who came running out of the house was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released, Hughes said. 

"He got out and didn't look too terribly bad," he said. 

The home is a total loss, Hughes said, and emergency workers were using a backhoe to rip it apart to get to the flames. No other buildings were affected. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
