Epic Win or Epic Fail? Brothers 'Explode' After Lottery Win

Local newspaper, The Wichita Eagle, reports that two brothers were partying together to celebrate a $75,000-winning lottery ticket, when they accidentally blew up their Wichita home. Neither of the brother's names has been reported.

One of the brothers went to the kitchen to refuel the butane torches they planned to use to light their bongs. He emptied a couple of large cans of butane lighter fluid, leaking butane into the air.

"The butane vapor reached the pilot light in the furnace, and as you might expect, ka-boom," Police Sgt. Bruce Watts said at a press conference.

According to local reports, the injured brother's girlfriend drove him to the hospital and then "sped off and has not been found."

The man was treated for second-degree burns and is in stable condition. The other brother was arrested on drug charges after telling police he had meth and marijuana in the home.

Reports also say that there were children in the house, though there were no reports that they were injured.
