A 52-year-old man died in an explosion in a garage in Kärne, north of Karlstad , on Friday morning.

"The man was working in the garage reparing a truck when the explosion happened. The 52-year-old man died immediately. The probably cause is that a tyre exploded," said Ronny Brattström, Värmland police spokesman.

A forensic examination of the garage will be carried out.

"The garage is in a property which is in the middle of nowhere," said Brattström.
