Explosion destroys rural home in Noble County

ALBION, Ind. (AP) — Authorities are investigating what caused an explosion that destroyed a house in a rural area of northeastern Indiana.

No injuries were reported from Tuesday's explosion at the two-story house a few miles from the Noble County town of Albion. Albion Deputy Fire Chief John Urso says the couple who lived at the home were outside when the explosion happened.

Urso tells WANE-TV that firefighters had the propane gas and other utilities to the house shut off but that there was no fire from the explosion. The blast sent debris across the road and left the home's second-floor section toppled onto the ground.

Firefighter Tim Tumbleson tells The News Sun that the explosion shook his house about a quarter-mile away.
