Once there, firefighters had to contend with the structure fire, the ignited propane supply, and live power wires that had been knocked down onto the ground. A nearby garage was also exposed to the flames. 

One person was taken to a nearby clinic to be evaluated for their injuries. No one else was injured in the blaze. 

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
