Neighbors told ABC 57 news after they heard a loud explosion they saw flames on Oak Grove Street.

Before fire crews even got there the homeowner and neighbors grabbed hoses and extinguishers and tried to put it out, but it was too intense.

Three other fire departments were called in to help Cleveland Township.
