NOW: House explodes during fire in Plainfield Township, Michigan

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.— A dash cam caught the moment an explosion occurred at a house fire near Grand Rapids, Michigan over the weekend.

Firefighters were called to a home on Pleasant Creek Ave. for a fire on July 3, just before 5 a.m., according to the Plainfield Township Fire Department.

All occupants made it out of the home and no one was injured, reports said.

Shortly after emergency crews arrived on scene, a large explosion occurred and caused the fire to “rapidly spread” throughout the home.

The homeowner told firefighters that there was a 100-pound propane tank in the garage.

It took over an hour for firefighters to get the fire under control.
