The summer of exploding houses continues.

This time the abode is, or was, in Jefferson and there are, unfortunately, no before pictures here, just the afters, which are plenty scary.

19 Action News says that the house that used to sit on this property exploded this morning. As you can tell, there's not much left. Thankfully no injuries were reported.
