Lithia, Florida -- A pizza man suffered second degree burns at the FishHawk Ranch baseball fields.

Baseball games were interrupted Saturday morning when players heard what sounded like a loud explosion.   

Formaggio's was just opening for business around 9 a.m. when the incident occurred. The pizzeria operates in a trailer between the baseball fields with a pizza oven and two external propane tanks. 

The injured man was attempting to ignite the pilot light when a buildup of propane gas flashed. The victims suffered first and second degree burns to the face, arms, and legs. 

It appears there was a malfunction in the propane line and Hillsborough County Fire Rescue's Investigator is investigating to confirm the cause.    

Engine crews on scene were able to turn off the tanks and secure the area.

No children were injured during the accident and there was no damage to the trailer or baseball facility.
