Newport, Ky. Home Destroyed by Gas Explosion

A gas explosion leveled a Newport, Ky home, with three people inside being injured; one of them critically.

Two of the three victims of the gas explosion and fire were taken to Cincinnati's University Hospital for treatment. One of them was diagnosed as in critical condition. No names of the residents have been released yet. There was also no release of the injuries, if any, sustained by the third resident in the home at the time of the accident.

According to Newport fire Captain Phil Dietz, the home was in flames by time firefighters came on the scene.

All that was left of the home was the foundation and the chimney, added Dietz. As of this report, there was no evidence of damage to surrounding homes, even though there were debris from the house located in trees and around the immediate neighborhood.
