Early-morning fire destroys house, burns others

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -- An early-morning fire on Detroit's west side destroyed one house and burned at least two others nearby.

No injuries were reported following the Friday fire on Allendale Street near the I-96 freeway. Hours after the blaze started, flames spewed from a ruptured gas line before it was shut off.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but sources tell FOX 2's Roop Raj arson investigators are on the case.

The fire department says it was told there were multiple explosions before crews responded.
