CARMEL, Calif. - A Carmel neighborhood had quite the scare this morning after a home exploded into pieces. But on Monday night, no one is saying exactly what happened. PG&E was working on gas lines in the area before the explosion.
As for the explosion it was so big it not only caused damage to nearby homes but people heard it several blocks away.
“It was like a bomb blast, I thought it was a tree hitting the house, but there was no tree around,” said resident James Lagiss.
Lagiss said came outside looked next door and saw this. A home on Guadalupe and Third Street in Carmel was in shambles, wood hanging from trees, debris on power lines and the roof completely blown off by an explosion.
“This is the part that hit the house and really shook things up,” Lagiss said.
The home was vacant no was injured. But the impact was so strong that Ian Dahl felt it five houses down.
