'EXPLOSION' from 'BOMB rigged barn' after 'hostage situation' - police injured

However, the man had not been taken into custody as of early Thursday morning, reports say.

The suspect's wife apparently managed to escape the house during the explosions, but it remains unclear whether other family members remain inside. Additional police rushed to the scene as the fire raged, and sounds of smaller explosions also were heard.

Police were attempting to negotiate with the man when a barn behind the home exploded, according to the AP.

Freda said that the officers suffered cuts, abrasions, and bruises, and were treated at Yale New Haven hospital.

None of the injuries to the officers were considered life-threatening, the Associated Press reports.

An explosion at a CT house where police and SWAT officers were engaged in a standoff with a barricaded suspect caused a large fire and left several people injured, according to accounts from the scene.

The incident took place in North Haven town.

The conditions of the suspect and his family was not immediately known.
