Space heater flued radiant/convection
Fire and explosion
Property damage level:
Restricted to the direct vicinity of the equipment

The glass was found pooled at the base of the fire. This is not consistent with a typical flame-effect fire (delayed ignition) explosion. It is believed that the glass front simply fell off the flame-effect fire.
