Large Explosion Destroys Home North of Houston

WILLIS (KRPC) - There appears to be nothing left of a home that Montgomery County officials confirms exploded early Tuesday morning.

Lifeflight dispatchers said as many as three injured patients were transported by medical helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital for treatment.

They said at least one patient was in critical condition.

The explosion happened after fire broke out at the home on Mandy Lane near Rogers Road in the Willis area.

The house was shredded as pieces of wood and debris were scattered around. Neighbors reported hearing the explosion and feeling the boom around 5 a.m.

Brad Trentham lives about five miles away.

"I heard a loud boom. I went out to the living room, I thought a car hit the wall, the whole wall moved," he said.

He went outside to see what had happened, and he was shocked at what he saw.

"There was nothing in my yard, but a bunch of my other neighbors were outside with flashlights looking around," Trentham said.
