MADISON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

 A 27-year-old man burned in an explosion and flown to Shriner's Hospital late Monday is expected to recover.

The man suffered burns to his hands and face when air brush equipment he was working with exploded about 7:50 p.m. Monday in the 78000 block of West Alexandria Road, said Melissa Gerhardt, spokeswoman for the Butler County Sheriff's Office. 

The incident doesn't appear to be suspicious.

The victim's mother called 911.
