House Explodes In Orange Mound
(Memphis) The fire department is responding to a house that exploded on Brooklyn Avenue.
MFD requested a unit for one person at the scene. No word yet on that person’s condition.
A second burn victim was found on Lamar Avenue, close to the scene. He was taken to the MED burn unit.
Neighbors said they were inside their own homes and heard a huge boom, then went outside to find the walls of the house bowed out.
Witnesses say they didn’t see any big fire or ball of smoke from the house, but they did see a resident, engulfed in flames, run out of the home.
MLGW says everything appears to be OK now.
