Investigators from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office are trying to determine what caused a San Tan Valley home to explode late Saturday, leaving a man critically injured.

The man, who was taken to a nearby hospital, initially told authorities he was cooking methamphetamine, but later denied it when he was questioned again, according to the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said they have responded to various incidents at the home since 2001, but said that it also is possible that a natural gas leak might have caused the explosion that caused the walls of the home to be blown off their foundation.

The injured man's name was not available.
