House badly damaged after reports of house explosion

Local News

The front of a home at the 2600 block of Corvalis Avenue was destroyed after reports of a house explosion Wednesday evening.

Fire crews were originally called out around 5:30 p.m. on reports of a structure fire. When they arrived witnesses reported there had been an explosion. 

Neighbors told WANE 15 they were watching TV when they heard a sound they thought was a rock quarry. They looked outside and saw the nearby house with the bay window blown out. According to them, no one lives at the home, but people were seen renovating it a couple days ago. 

Firefighters were on scene cleaning up parts of the home that were spread across the yard. 

The cause of the possible explosion has not been released.
