Home Explosion

An explo­sion that could be heard and felt by some peo­ple as much as four miles away, lev­eled a Steuben County home Thurs­day. No one was in the home at the time, but a dog that was inside was res­cued by a neigh­bor.

Police say it hap­pened at the home on Snow Lake around 1:30 yes­ter­day after­noon.

When fire­fight­ers arrived , the bath­tub was sit­ing in front of what used to be the house.

The home was owned by Danielle Young, an employee of Dave’s Lake Shack, the busi­ness next door. Dave Ellis owns the busi­ness. He’s the man who res­cued Young’s dog.

Ellis told reporters that he was upstairs at his busi­ness when he heard what he thought was an explo­sion.

He looked out the win­dow and all he saw was debris fill­ing the air.

Inves­ti­ga­tors say the gas lines were bro­ken right at the base of the house.

The inves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing today.
