BREAKING: House Explodes In Euclid (Update)


2 comments reports that the house which exploded earlier this morning was a vacant two-story bungalow.

The home had been unoccupied for approximately six months.

Neighbor Krystal Bruce told that she heard a noise that sounded "like a bomb went off."

"I was outside talking to some of my house guests, and then all of a sudden there was just this huge explosion," she said. "There was glass, ashes, dust, debris, just everywhere."

Twitter has also been blowing up- no pun intended- with responses and photos from the scene.
