The man suffered burns to his arms and face and was flown to a Salt Lake City hospital for treatment. He was expected to survive, Potter said.

Potter said the man was working on an air-conditioning unit at time of the incident. He said investigators weren’t sure what sparked the small explosion, but he said it didn’t damage the building.

No one else was injured.
