Mother is the 3rd person to die after Missouri home exploded

WYATT, Mo. (AP) – Authorities say a young mother is the third member of her family to die in a gas explosion at her Missouri home.

Twenty-two-year-old Myranda Gale Golden was hurt Monday when her home in the far southern Missouri town of Wyatt erupted in flames and was taken to a burn unit in Memphis, Tennessee, for treatment.

Wyatt is about 130 miles northeast of Memphis. The Mississippi County Sheriff’s Office in Missouri said in a news release that it was notified Friday that she had died.

She was the mother of a 3-year-old who died Thursday and her significant other, Corey Coleman, died in the immediate aftermath of the blast.

Seven others remain hospitalized in stable condition.
