November 06, 2017 - 5:47 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Firefighters say a house explosion in central Ohio left two people injured, one of them severely.

WBNS-TV reports that neighbours helped pull people from the burning home in southeastern Columbus early Monday morning.

Authorities didn't immediately share details about the man and woman who were injured or about what might have caused the blast.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that debris was strewn across the yard.

A gas company said it was working with emergency responders to ensure that the area is safe.
