CT House explosion

STAMFORD — A house on Webbs Hill Road is “totally gone” after an explosion, and the homeowner, who was outside at the time, was taken to a hospital, official said.

The house was leveled and an underground 500-gallon propane tank — which is being investigated as a possible cause of the explosion — continued burning for more than four hours after the explosion, said Ted Jankowski, Stamford’s director of public safety.

“It’s like going to hell,” he said of the propane fire during a press conference Tuesday evening.
