One man was air lifted that was found in the home yelling for help.
CFD tells me this is considered a rescue mission right now. They’re told by neighbors people were believed to be inside the home during the explosion. No confirmation on how many. First responders first priority right now is to make sure everyone is safe. @WBTV_News https://t.co/NlqbJRqwQB— Chandler Morgan (@Chandler_TV) July 2, 2019
