April 16 – An early morning explosion rocked a Maple Grove neighborhood and destroyed a home.

Around 7:15 a.m. Maple Grove fire crews were called to the 9400 block of Saratoga Lane for an explosion and fire. They arrived to find flames and smoke from the one-story dwelling, which suffered extensive damaged.

Maple Grove Fire Chief Scott Anderson told KSTP-TV that incident was caused by a gas leak in the vacant home.

Twin Cities Fire Wire will have more information when it is made available.
