Coolbaugh Township, PA — A propane leak caused an explosion and fire that destroyed a Monroe County home Sunday afternoon, officials said.
The homeowners were at work and escaped injury, Coolbaugh Township fire Chief Bill Weimer Jr. said.
Weimer said the first firefighters to arrive found the home off its foundation with windows on all four walls blown out. There was initially little sign of fire.
With a steady supply of air through the broken windows, the fire quickly grew and consumed the house, Weimer said.
