Explosion rocks Danville, N.H. home

DANVILLE, N.H. (WHDH) -

An explosive scene in New Hampshire today when a house in Danville went up in flames.

Firefighters were on scene where the house has now collapsed for several hours.

Emergency crews say an 88-year-old woman who lived in the home may have been trapped inside.

A meals on wheels worker was making a delivery inside when the explosion happened.

“I heard her yell and I told her she had mail. Just then as I looked up I saw a huge ball of fire. And it just exploded towards the front of the house in the room where she would have been sitting and I would have been,” Ron Metcalf, a Meals on Wheels delivery person, said.

Officials have not said if the woman got out or what caused the fire.
