Firefighters searched the homes and did not find anyone inside. However, Landis noted that there were a lot of people outside, so it is not clear if anyone was inside when the fire and explosion were first reported.

While snowy roads can slow down the department’s response, Landis said the cold wasn’t bothering crews Monday morning.
