Two Injured in Crawford Co., IL Arson and Explosion

A suspected arson fire and resulting explosion injured two men Wednesday near Flat Rock, Illinois.

Crawford County Sheriff Todd Liston says investigators believe an accelerant was used to set an oil tank and pump station on fire.

31-year-old Craig Fuller was injured in the blast. 

Officials suspect Fuller was the one who started the fire.

Also injured was an un-named fire fighter.

Both were taken to the Crawford Memorial Hospital for treatment.

Fuller was airlifted to an undisclosed hospital for further treatment.

No charges have been filed against Fuller at this time.

Fuller is a suspect in several suspicious fires that occurred last month in rural Palestine.
