43-year-old Gerardo Enriquez Senior was walking through his back yard when multiple propane tanks blew up Sunday afternoon.

Family members cleaned up the charred debris. CALFIRE investigators have ruled the disaster -- an accident.

The Fresno County coroner says it could be weeks before he can officially identify the three victims.

Funeral arrangements are on hold until Enriquez's body is released.
