One person was injured when an explosion propelled an aerosol can from a fire in Norfolk Saturday afternoon.

According to emergency officials, crews were called to a scene on Route 182 after a man was injured in a small explosion. Officials said the can was thrown into a fire where it exploded, sending it back at the man, whose age and identity was not immediately available.

A medic and Life Star were both requested to the scene, and the helicopter will land near the intersection of Rock Hall Road and Route 44.
