MATHIAS, W. Va. (WHSV) -- A house has been destroyed after an explosion on Monday morning.
No one was home at the time and there were no injuries; however, neighbors did feel the ground shake.
The call came into just before 9 a.m. and three fire companies were dispatched to battle the fire, according to Craig Stawderman, the fire chief of the Mathias-Baker Volunteer Fire Company.
The home, built in 2012, had a gas range installed over the weekend and Chief Stawderman's best guess at this point in the investigation is that there was a slow propane gas leak
The home was estimated to be worth about $100,000.
The cause of the explosion is still under investigation.
