What just happened in Flanders, NJ?
I caught the tail-end of a report of an explosion somewhere around Flanders, on the Fox Network Cable Channel, here in NC.
I can't seem to find any additional info on the internet...

The house could have had propane. It had to be gas of some sort-unless the guy was playing mad scientist in the basement

Vacant house -renovations had "just begun" (which I read as, people with work gloves came by and made noises.... which probably was them removing copper piping)
