STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — A million-dollar home in Stamford, Conn. was leveled to the ground Tuesday, when it erupted in a massive explosion.
As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, not much was left of the house besides a pile of smoldering rubble after the explosion at 305 Webbs Hill Rd. The blast shook the quiet suburban neighborhood full of multi-million dollar homes.
Alongside a backyard pool, debris was strewn on the lawn of a neighboring house. Through the trees, the orange glow of flames remained visible as what was left of the house continued to burn.
The explosion erupted just before 2 p.m. One next-door neighbor thought it was a natural disaster.
