The names of three men involved in a gas tank explosion in Bellevue Thursday night were released on Friday.

Twenty-three-year-old Zach Zeleny suffered third-degree burns to his arms and back. He was one of the men who took a gas tank with some gas still inside from a Jeep and then put it into an illegal open burn at 26th and Margo.

Zeleny was taken to Saint Elizabeth's Burn Center in Lincoln for treatment. The other two who live at the home are 24-year-old Dustin Steele and 23-year-old Brian Ward. Each received a ticket for an open burn violation.
