Fireworks apparently triggered an explosion that injured a man inside of a home in Chicago's west suburbs.

It happened Wednesday morning in the 400-block of East Altgeld in Glendale Heights.

When firefighters arrived they say they found a man inside the front entrance. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition.

People who live around the explosion site were asked to evacuate their homes until crews traced the source of the blast.
