A video posted by Rob Elgas of ABC 7 shows a heavy cloud of thick, dark smoke billowing from the remains of a home in the southwest suburban neighborhood. Firefighters can be seen around the perimeter of the explosion hosing it down with water. The video shows just a bit of flames, but most of it is smoke clogging the air.
Another video shows heavy flames coming from the home. A firefighter is heard on video pushing the crowd away.
"We gotta make sure this doesn't explode again," he said.
