Ohio: 5 homes burn on same street as home explosion


Five homes caught fire in Ohio Wednesday -- on the same street where a deadly home explosion occurred over the weekend.

Firefighters responded around midnight, they found two houses burning, and the flames spread quickly to three more homes.

Three of the homes were vacant, but the two that sustained the most damage were occupied.

Luckily no injuries were reported.

Officials are investigating the cause of the fires.

It all happened about a half a mile from the home that exploded Sunday after gas built up while several people were stripping the house for scrap metal.
