House leveled by explosion in New Carlisle

NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The State Fire Marshal is investigating after a house exploded in Clark County Thursday night.

Officers received the call about the explosion in the 7800 block of Lower Valley Pike around 7:05 p.m.

Some workers in the area who heard the explosion found a propane tank nearby and turned it off, but firefighters couldn’t say definitively whether or not gas caused the explosion.

The blast was so powerful that some heard the boom more than a half mile away, and neighbors down the street could feel the vibrations.

No one was home when the house exploded and no one was injured.
