One person was transported to the hospital after an accident at a warehouse caused an explosion in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, fire officials say. 

Authorities say a man dragged an oil barrel from outside a garage area to just inside it. He then used a welding torch to remove the top of the barrel to use it as a trash can. 

The barrel exploded when the torch ignited a small amount of oil residue in the bottom of the barrel.

The force of the explosion pushed the man into a wall.

According to authorities, employees used fire extinguishers to put the fire out.
