DESTIN, Florida -

Authorities in northwest Florida are investigating a car explosion outside a vacation home that killed one person and injured another person visiting from Illinois.

The state fire marshal's office said Sunday that the explosion was accidental and there's no indication of foul play.

Firefighters, paramedics and deputies responded to reports of a loud explosion and fire on Saturday evening in Destin.

The Okaloosa County Sherriff's Office says 35-year-old Michael Todd Brower from his injuries and 58-year-old Luis Lopez remains in critical condition at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. Both were visiting from Illinois.

The investigation continues.
