Cleveland.com reports that the house which exploded earlier this morning was a vacant two-story bungalow.
The home had been unoccupied for approximately six months.
Neighbor Krystal Bruce told Cleveland.com that she heard a noise that sounded "like a bomb went off."
"I was outside talking to some of my house guests, and then all of a sudden there was just this huge explosion," she said. "There was glass, ashes, dust, debris, just everywhere."
Twitter has also been blowing up- no pun intended- with responses and photos from the scene.
