LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Thankfully it’s not very often you hear about a house exploding in mid-Michigan.
And it’s even more rare to get that caught on video.
6 News got a hold of Lansing Fire Department dash-cam video that shows just that.
The video is from two weeks ago at a home on the 800 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.
It all started when an SUV hit a red car sending that car flying into the home, and severing a gas line.
That started a fire.
Fire fighters moved quickly to evacuate five nearby homes.
Luckily no one was hurt.
It was a close-call though, because two fire fighters had just left the home just moments before it exploded.
Police are still trying to find the driver of the SUV.
