The blaze is under investigation but neighbors claim they heard an explosion followed by flames. The fire began in a shed in the back yard of a residence, spread to the home then to a neighboring home on the north side. Two other homes were endangered by the flames and homeowners spent the afternoon watering down their roofs in hopes of saving their homes.
