One dead two injured in Indiana home explosion

Accidental house fires are a serious safety threat.

William Short, who lives across the street from the house, said the front doors, every window and brick was blown off his home.

The police officer did not say whether the victims were inside the house that exploded.

At first, he thought it might have been a tornado - and then he saw "what looked like bright, sparkly fireworks", the Courier Journal reported.

Just before 5 a.m., a blast destroyed the home and sent debris flying across the Capitol Hills neighborhood, setting a vehicle on fire and damaging about 20 surrounding homes, the Courier-Journal reports.

Jeffersonville Fire Chief Eric Hedrick told a WAVE 3 News photographer that the home where the blast originated from was "completely damaged". We're in the process now of doing our secondary research.

Three people were taken to the hospital, one has reportedly died. The names have not yet been released and their conditions are not known, according to Sgt. Jason Ames, a Jeffersonville Fire Department spokesman. He said it was felt up to 5 miles (8 kilometers) away and that the house where it occurred suffered "catastrophic" damage.

A photo posted to Facebook by the fire department shows debris and damage covering the ground as firefighters stand near a home that is destroyed, but still standing.

The fire department announced they had ruled out the possibility of a meth lab on the premises of the explosion and were awaiting results of the gas company's investigation.
