To conserve electrical power, most services were switched off to extend the module's strained resources, including the cabin heaters, after the Apollo 13 crisis.
Although it didn't land on the Moon's surface, the lunar module pilot was Fred Haise Jr; the command module pilot was John "Jack" Swigert.
We can say that it was a explosion in the oxygen cylinder.
The Apollo 13 did not land on the moon only.

The cause of the Apollo 1 fire was a flash fire that ignited in the pure oxygen environment of the capsule during a launch pad test. The fire was triggered by a spark from exposed wiring that ignited a flammable material in the spacecraft, leading to the tragic deaths of astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee. This incident prompted significant safety changes in the design and testing of spacecraft.
The crew of Apollo 13 experienced a critical failure in their spacecraft's oxygen tank, which caused them to abort their mission to land on the moon. They had to work with ground control to come up with innovative solutions to conserve power, heat, and water to ensure their safe return to Earth. Their resourcefulness and teamwork during the crisis became a testament to human ingenuity in space exploration.
There were no spacecraft named Apollo 2 or 3
Sometimes one of the unmanned test missions is erroneously called Apollo 3. This was the AS202 mission which tested the command and service modules in suborbital flight. This was launched on August 26th 1966.
Yes it is. Really happened- we almost lost 3 astronauts.
