CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio — A man was hurt after an explosion at a beloved donut shop in Miami Township.

Clermont County dispatch said an oven exploded around 10 p.m at Pop's Donuts along State Route 131 causing the shop's storefront to completely shatter.

The owner's son and store manager, Nick Holtman, said his father, Chuck Holtman, received treatment at the hospital for burns and was released Monday evening.

It's unclear the extent of the overall damage or how this will impact business moving forward.

"The plan is to re-open as soon as possible after all necessary steps have been resolved. The timetable is uncertain but the hope is soon," Nick said.
