SYLMAR (CBS) — A blood drive will be held Thursday to help a firefighter who was critically injured when a building exploded in Sylmar earlier this week.

Timothy Larson, who reportedly co-owns the business that was destroyed Tuesday, lost an arm and a leg in the blast.

The off-duty firefighter was on disability leave at the time.

Larson’s brother died in a workplace explosion in Simi Valley last year.

Thursday’s blood drive will be held between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills.

    I am sorry for Mr. Larson but hearing that his brother was killed in an explosion last year – it is time to close up the family business once and for all! And what the hell were they making?
