A woman suffered burns to her face and $165,000 worth of classic cars were destroyed during large fire in Lancaster County on Friday morning.

Emergency crews responded to 11300 S. 1st Street, in the area of Highway 77 and Saltillo Road, around 7 a.m. on Friday.

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Department said upon arrival, fire crews found a large building and a motor home fully engulfed in flames.

They added that the woman living in the motor home, 47-year-old Rebecca Daro, heard a hissing sound before the fire, and when she went to check on what it was, an explosion occurred.

Authorities believe a propane tank exploded, causing the fire.

Daro suffered burns to her face and her hair was singed, authorities said, and she was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

LSO also said that three classic cars were in the building next to the motor home, and all three were destroyed, resulting in a loss of $165,000.

In total, over $200,000 of damage was caused, LSO said.
