MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Authorities in Milwaukee are investigating a house explosion from early Sunday on the city's northwest side.
The blast and a resulting fire destroyed the home and caused significant damage to two neighboring houses.
Officials said there were no serious injuries, but they did not have an immediate word on the conditions of the people living in the house where the blast originated. It was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Five people moved out of the neighboring homes because they were damaged so badly.
According to WTMJ, first responders found natural gas spewing from a line -- and the blast destroyed the gas meter of the main house. The station also said the house was in the process of being foreclosed upon.
