Corpus Christi Fire Department officials say the explosion happened before dawn Wednesday at a Haas-Anderson Construction site.

The Nueces County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man who died as 53-year-old Jose de la Torre, of Corpus Christi.

Authorities didn’t immediately provide details on the injured man, who was taken to a hospital.
