HOUSTON (KETK) – A massive explosion in Houston early Friday morning has devastated a neighborhood.
According to our NBC affiliate KPRC, the explosion happened just after 4:20 a.m. and that nearly every home in the area had extensive damage to their homes.
A video of the explosion was captured on a window camera by a neighbor, who was not injured in the explosion.
In an interview with KPRC, one resident described the explosion as a “warzone.”
“It busted out every window in our house. It busted everybody’s garage door in around here … and closer toward the explosion over here, it busted people’s roofs in and walls in and we don’t know what it is … It’s a warzone over here.”Mark Brady
The Houston Fire Department said that there was one person taken to a local hospital. It is still also unknown what caused the blast. Many streets in the area have been blocked off as a precaution.
