The house at the corner of Lakeview Avenue and Goodrich Street exploded at about 11:30 a.m. No one was home at the time, and there were no injuries.

Firefighters say although the gas buildup is believed to be the cause, they are still investigating.

Six fire departments from New York and Pennsylvania battled the blaze for about an hour.
