A 50-year-old man was killed in an explosion at a well site in northern Alberta Tuesday evening.
RCMP said emergency responders were called to an explosion at a well site south of Grande Prairie near Musreau Lake at around 7:20 p.m.
A 50-year-old man was found dead at the scene and another man was taken to hospital in Grande Prairie with non-life-threatening injuries.
RCMP said a third man was at the site but was not injured.
Initial reports indicate the explosion was the result of a gas leak which was later contained, police said.
