No injuries reported after massive explosion in Gates (video)

Miraculously no injuries were reported after a massive explosion in the Rochester suburb of Gates.

The home was leveled and neighboring structures were damaged on Noel Drive, which is off of Lyell Road.

“We are happy to report that despite the extensive damage suffered to the three homes and other properties in the area there were no injuries to civilians or firefighters. The homeowner was located safe, not home, nearly three hours into the incident,” officials said in a press release.

It’s not entirely clear what caused the blast. But video below from a neighbor shows the moment the home exploded.
