There's new information this morning about an explosion and fire on Whitemarsh Island last week. WTOC spoke with Savannah-Chatham police last night and they have confirmed that Quang Tran, 26, was the man killed in the blast.

Tran lived in the house with his mother, but she was in Texas when the explosion happened.

This weekend investigators wrapped up their onsite investigation, but they still don't know what caused the blast. They've sent their findings to the ATF crime lab. The results are not expected back for several weeks.
