PHOENIX (AP) - A former munitions maker who once owned a property where a man was wounded in an explosion this week says he doesn't believe the device belonged to him.

Steven Scott Lane remained hospitalized Thursday after losing part of his foot and injuring his leg in the blast Monday on the outskirts of Phoenix. Two witnesses initially told authorities Lane was helping them move out of a home when he stepped on something that exploded.

Authorities say the three were not supposed to be on the property and are still investigating whether the explosion was related to munitions that were made there by the site's former owner in the 1990s.

Charles Byers, however, tells KGTV in San Diego he doesn't believe that whatever blew up was connected to the munitions he made.
