CANTON -- The Canton Fire Department received numerous reports for a house explosion around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night at 706 Weiler Court NE in Canton.

When they arrived, there were flames coming out of all the windows of this two-story frame house, it appeared the house was off its foundation, and it had caved in.

Fire Officials called Dominion East Ohio Gas to the scene so they could turn off the gas lines.

There were at least 3 houses evacuated around the house on fire as a precaution.

So far, no reports of any injuries though Channel 3 News crews were told that 4 puppies had to be rescued from the home.

As of 10 p.m. the fire was still smouldering, though the flames have been doused.

Fire investigators cleared the scene late Wednesday night and will return Thursday morning.
