6-12-04- Authorities are investigating a bizarre house explosion in Pushmataha County. Earlier this week, a home in Tuskahoma exploded and collapsed and when authorities arrived, they found a man's body inside.
Pushmataha County authorities believe a 22 year old man found dead inside the home may have been hired to burn the house down.
Officials have not been able to positively identify the body, but say they received a phone call Thursday from the man's sister alleging he had been hired to burn the house down, but he did not survive.
Pushmataha County Sheriff Elvin Flood says two brothers who are in custody are not talking to officers.
