State fire marshal investigates house explosion


The Ohio State Fire Marshal is investigating an explosion in Butler County.

The explosion happened late Monday night in the 6800 block of Wayne Trace in Sommerville. It was not reported until Tuesday morning.

Firefighters believe it was a gas explosion. No flames were visible when they arrived at the scene.

The State Fire Marshal says the source and cause of the explosion have not yet been determined and are under investigation, and investigators have found no indication of criminal intent.

No one was home at the time, so no injuries were reported.

Investigators say there does not appear to have been any fire associated with the explosion. They are currently conducting interviews with the homeowner and neighbors and conducting the examination of the scene.
