CONSORT, Alta. — A man has died from injuries he received in a propane tank explosion on an east-central Alberta farm.

Mounties say the man, who lived on the rural property near Consort, had been operating a propane-fired torch.

A spokesperson for STARS says the air ambulance was called to the scene just before noon on Sunday.

The helicopter was told to "stand down'' because it wasn't medically required to transport the patient.
