UPDATE:
 
Officers from the state fire marshals office were back at the scene of a Preston County home that exploded on Wednesday. That's because they think it might be a case of arson.
 
George Teter was flown to the West Penn Burn Center early Tuesday morning. That's when his home was destroyed.
 
He told crews that a propane tank exploded.
 
Detectives said Teter tried to burn his home down this summer.
 
He's still at the West Penn Burn Center in critical condition.
