BARNESVILLE, Minn. - An explosion blew the garage door off a home here Monday morning. 
Barnesville resident Dorothy Holland left her home about 8:30 a.m. to come to Moorhead before getting word that there was an explosion at her house.  
 Holland said a propane tank in the basement exploded mid-morning, destroying the home's garage door.   "It's a blessing it didn't take the whole neighborhood then," Holland said.
