Propane leak possibly to blame for deadly Boone County fire

We know the name now of the man who died in a Boone County house fire last week.

Charles Tolentino, 68, of Columbia was trapped upstairs during a fire on Hague Road south of Hallsville on Jan. 5. He died at a hospital.

Investigators say an explosion happened before the fire. They could not rule out a propane leak.
