Three people were killed and one hospitalized after a large explosion and fire at an auto shop in Hillsboro, officials say.
Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire Chief David Manning said the victim who was taken to the hospital is in stable condition.
The fire started around 4 p.m. Tuesday at Jimbo’s Auto Shop on 502 S. High Street, according to Highland County dispatchers.
Black smoke from the explosion and fire could be seen for miles as the blaze fully engulfed the building. Fire crews had to rescue everyone inside and were seen loading a man into an ambulance. The fire chief said crews felt the force of the explosion from as far as four blocks away at their firehouse.
Multiple first responders and the State Fire Marshal’s Office remained on the scene overnight investigating the cause.

VIDEO: Let's set the record straight: it's the end of November, and it's definitely not too early for holiday lights.
A volunteer fire company opened up its drive-thru display of lights Friday - about a million of them, according to the company.
WMAR-2 News got a full tour just before it opened. "We have a little over a million lights throughout the carnival grounds up here," said Scott Warner, public information officer for the company.
"It started out as a dream, looking at other peoples' light displays, and we said 'you know something, we can do this. We have the property to do it.' And it started, and each year keeps getting bigger and bigger."
Volunteers started all the way back on October 1 to put the displays together. The results speak for themselves.
Folks drive around the roughly half-mile track, and enjoy the holiday classics, all in lights.

VIDEO: The City of Chester's Police and Fire Departments are using new technology for search and recovery missions.
They're among the first departments in the Commonwealth to have their own underwater robot.
Chester Fire Captain Kevin Postlewait went through training with the state-of-the-art robot he says will make his job as a diver easier.
"Our plan is to use it for recovery of weapons, vehicles, people," Postlewait said.
The 40-pound submersible has lights and arms that can grab objects and a remote control camera. Postlewait uses a joystick to move the device as he tries to pick up a pair of milk crates placed in the Springton Reservoir for practice.
"With the sonar, we can, I believe, reach out to about 300 feet, which you will never be able to see with our own eyes underwater, so it will make a drastic difference in visual sight," Postlewait said.
