One man died early Friday morning after suffering severe burns from a mobile home explosion in Chattaroy, according to Harborview Medical Center.
Michael Asselin, 51, and his 57-year-old wife were both badly burned when the mobile home Asselin lived in exploded Wednesday afternoon.
The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the fire as a domestic violence situation. An investigator at the scene Thursday said it may have been an attempted homicide or a high-level assault.
The wife remains in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at Harborview.
