UPDATE 4/14/13 @ 10:58 p.m.
LOGAN COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The West Virginia State Fire Marshal is investigating a fire that destroyed a home and injured two people Saturday night.

The fire happened at a house in the Peach Creek area of Logan County. State Police say a man and a woman were in the house when the fire started.

Both people got out, but suffered burns to their hands and face and were taken to Cabell Huntington Hospital, according to troopers.

Neighbors described hearing a loud explosion before the fire started.

"I heard a big boom and I thought there was a car wreck," Beth Johnson said. "I ran out to see what was going on and there was a bunch of people standing. They were afraid it was going to spread."

Crews got it under control before it could hurt anyone else or damage any other property. But neighbors say seeing the flames might make it a little harder to sleep tonight.

"We're all so close together, and it was really scary," Johnson said.

State Police say the inside of the home was so badly burned that investigators may have a hard time determining what caused the fire.

There is no word yet on the victims' condition.
