A home was leveled to the ground after an explosion in Sumpter Township on Saturday.

The explosion happened at a home on Martinsville, near Oakville Waltz Rd.

“About 3,000 square feet, a beautiful home completely leveled in 10 seconds,” Rush said.

Deputy Supervisor Rush says the man had a lit cigarette in his hand as he entered the home, and a gas leak could be the cause of the explosion.

The investigation is ongoing.
