Authorities investigate house explosion in Eau Claire County

TOWN OF WASHINGTON, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities are trying to figure out why a house exploded Sunday near Eau Claire.

The family who lived there was away on vacation, and nobody was hurt. Their house was leveled, and five others received damage.

The blast was reported just after noon Sunday in the Eau Claire County town of Washington.

Media reports said the blast was so strong, it threw a mattress onto a roadway.

A neighbor, Gary Streveler, said his house became uninhabitable as a result of the blast. He told reporters that his walls cracked and windows were blown out.

Officials do not believe that foul play was involved in the blast.

The Red Cross is helping those affected by the damage.
