Okay, This is a wild story, so why don't I just show you this video right off the bat, because it's absolutely insane.
Yes, this happened on Saturday morning around 10:30 in Plum, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh. Two other homes were engulfed by flames and destroyed as a result of the explosion.
The home that exploded, well, it's just gone.
Like, I could watch that video a thousand times and still not believe that was a thing that actually happened. But unfortunately, it was.
The explosion and large fire in Plum, Pennsylvania, a suburb northeast of Pittsburgh, destroyed three houses and damaged at least a dozen more, authorities said.
First responders who rushed to Plum found people trapped under debris and took three people to a hospital. Of the three, two have been released and the third is in the hospital in critical condition, according to police.
The remains of five victims - four adults and one adolescent - were also found at the scene…
Crews from 18 different fire departments converged on the scene to put out the flames and sift through the rubble as "several" people remained unaccounted for Saturday afternoon.
Multiple other homes were damaged as a result of the explosion, and it is still unclear what caused it. To me, it looks like gas, but the investigation is ongoing.
By 4:30 p.m. local time, the area was still considered an "active scene" and first responders were expected to remain there for hours, according to the county...
Gas was turned off in the area while emergency crews worked at the scene, authorities said at a news conference, adding multiple representatives from different gas companies were at the scene.
The Red Cross and Salvation Army are assisting residents impacted by the explosion, the county said.
Scary stuff, man. Say a prayer for this entire neighborhood. Lord knows they need it.
