SNOW CAMP, N.C. (WGHP) — An Alamance County home was reduced to rubble after exploding on Monday.
Around noon, emergency crews were called to Quakenbush Road about an explosion. When they arrived, they found a home that had been essentially leveled, with flaming debris scattered.
The fire was put out relatively quickly and investigators determined that some kind of gas link had a leak in it. The homeowner had turned the heater on before leaving around 8 a.m. and a few hours later, the home exploded.
No one was hurt, but debris did fall in a neighbor’s yard.
The fire marshal cautions that everyone should check their heating units before they turn them on as the temperatures begin cooling down.
