A small fire and explosion in Casper has led to the arrest fo an 18-year-old Casper man.

Casper police say that Skye Willow was arrested after witnesses reported seeing Willow fleeing the area following a small explosion that happened in the entryway of a home in Central Casper.

Investigators believe the small explosion and fire was caused by Willow lighting a box on fire and opening the valves of oxygen tanks that were in that box.

Investigators say their beliefs are supported by statements made by Willow following his arrest.

Alcohol use is also believed to have been a factor in the incident.
