Man injured in Houston County meth lab improving

CALEDONIA, Minn. (KTTC) -- The man injured in a meth lab explosion near Caledonia Sunday is getting better.

The Winona Daily News reports Mark Link, 50, is being treated at the University of Wisconsin Hospital Burn Center in Madison.

He had been taken there in critical condition. But a spokesperson says Link has now been upgraded to fair condition.

Link was injured in the explosion that heavily damaged the home on County Road 249 over the weekend.

The Houston County Sheriff's Office blocked off the residence for a dangerous chemical investigation.

When authorities got to the scene, Link was transported to a hospital in La Crosse before being transferred to the burn unit in Madison.
