No one was home at the time of the explosion, which ripped
through the house in Mesquite and investigators want to know what caused it. The blast blew out the windows and doors at
the home in the 1400 block of Fernwood Drive.
The house caught fire and the flames were so intense, one neighbor
started spraying down her own yard and fence to keep them from burning.
Investigators say the explosion might've been confined to
the garage, cause that's where chemicals are often stored. The garage did take most of the impact of the
explosion with the living portion of the home suffering moderate damage.
