(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A worker was killed by an explosion Friday mid-day at a North Las Vegas truck repair shop.

Fire officials think the unidentified man was welding on a tanker when suspected fumes from the tanker may have touched off the explosion.

A roof on the building was lifted off its supports, and surrounding walls were blown out.

The incident occurred at Nevada Truck & Trailer Repair on Sloan Lane, near Nellis Air Force Base.
