Before fire officials arrived on scene, the house was already completely engulfed in flames.

The cause of this explosion still remains under investigation. “There were a lot of objects in the basement as well that were flammable and somewhat explosive. He had a large bank of batteries, he had a propane generator in the basement — just a lot of things down there very flammable and explosive,” says Sheriff Craig Apple.
