An explosion in a Montecito restaurant sent an employee to the hospital with burns.

A worker was trying to light a pilot light in an oven just before 10 this morning when the explosion occurred at Giovanni’s Pizza, on the 1100 block of Coast Village Road.

The blast tossed the man backwards, and he suffered what are being described as moderate injuries.

Damage from the blast was confined to the interior of the restaurant.
