The power of an explosion leveled the home northeast of Sullivan, spreading debris over the yard and into the adjacent courtyard.



Moultrie County Coroner Lynn Reed said that Jared L. Schrock, 20, who lived in the home with his family, was pronounced dead on the scene at 12:10. Preliminary indications are the cause of death, a blunt force trauma from the explosion, but smoking inhalation was probably a factor, Reed said.
