Taylor, Neb. — Investigators are looking for the cause of an explosion that leveled a vacant building in the small north-central Nebraska town of Taylor. The explosion happened Tuesday afternoon, when Loup County volunteer firefighters were called to the town of about 200 people and found the shattered ruins of a vacant downtown building that had been converted into a home. No injuries were reported, but the Lincoln Journal Star reports that the blast damaged the post office and a livestock barn on either side of the building and blew out windows for blocks around.
