A man from Cecil is dead following an explosion and barn fire on Paulding County Road 8.
It happened on Sunday morning just before 11. Officials say 25 year old Mike Froelich was welding in the bed of a pickup truck near the fuel tank when the tank exploded.
Froelich’s two-year-old son, who was nearby, received minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
Froelich was taken by family members to ProMedica Defiance Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
