What a $640,000 House Looks Like After It Completely Explodes



Imagine leaving your house looking like that, and coming back to see it like this.
  • Imagine leaving your house looking like that, and coming back to see it like this.

Whenever a house explodes, it always seems to be in a working-class neighborhood. Nothing fancy, just a regular house no a regular street where regular people live. It's never a mansion. Not that exploding houses of any variety are good, it's just an observation: It's usually just an unspectacular home.

Until now.

Out in Concord, OH, a house valued at $640,000 was completely leveled by an explosion this weekend. It was just flattened, with shards of crisped tinder strewn across the manicured green lawn like a tornado carrying loads of explosives descended upon the tranquil home and then retreated to the sky without touching anything else on the pristine plot of land.

The pictures and video from 19 Action News are quite astonishing — there's literally nothing left standing except for a few interior walls.

Thankfully no one was home when the house went kaboom and no one was hurt.
