TOWN OF BLOOMING GROVE – A barbeque grill propane tank exploded turning a single-family house at 922 Craigville Road in the Town of Blooming Grove, Chester Fire District, into a raging inferno.

The house was a giant ball of orange flames that reached into the nighttime sky.

Several fire departments were called in to assist Chester firefighters to battle the blaze that was reported around 8:45 p.m. Thursday.

There was no immediate word if there were any injuries.
