Empty house explodes in Vergennes Township
Two people in a neighboring home were injured when the uninhabited house at 2936 Fallasburg Park Dr. NE in Vergennes Township exploded at around 3 am on Monday, Dec. 16.
The explosion could be heard several miles away. The home, owned by Kelsey Wold, was in the process of being remodeled, but it is now completely destroyed. Half-burned debris litters a large, snowy area around the site of the explosion and even hangs from the trees.
The people living next door were treated for smoke inhalation by Rockford Ambulance paramedics. That residence also suffered damage from the blast.
The incident is under investigation by the Michigan State Police, but it was most likely caused by a gas leak.
