JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) — Local and federal investigators were in Joliet on Tuesday, trying to determine what caused a house to explode in flames Monday afternoon.
WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports no one was injured when the blast occurred in the 700 block of Lambeth Lane in Joliet around 2 p.m. Monday. The house was engulfed in flames, and the fire burned for about two hours before it was put out.
“It was boom! Boom! Boom! I felt the house shake,” said neighbor Kelly Forrest, who works out of her home next door to the one that blew up.
