BREAKING: House Explodes In Euclid (Update) 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 that she heard a noise that sounded "like a bomb went off."

Twitter has also been blowing up- no pun intended- with responses and photos from the scene.
