No one was hurt as a result of the explosion, even though neighbors told our crew that they reported seeing a homeless person potentially living there.
“The home is vacant, and utilities were shut off months ago” said Tim Rose, District Fire Chief.
Investigators are still working to find out what caused the explosion.
Fire crews have been on scene of a working house fire in the 100 block of Bluecrest Avenue.
Initial reports indicate there was an explosion.
Dayton Fire District Chief Tim Rose told WHIO-TV that fire crews received a call at about 1:30 p.m. that a house was on fire. En route, responders were told witnesses heard an explosion.
“The house appears to have had explosions,” Rose said. “The front windows were blown out.”
He said investigators are looking into the situation.
