A man was inside the home at the time of the explosion, WCCO reported. He was responsive when authorities rushed him to a nearby hospital, according to the news station. No other injuries were reported, although eight neighbors were displaced by the blasts, which shattered the windows of nearby homes, according to WCCO.
A dog and a cat were also rescued from the wrecked home, KMSP reported.
It was not immediately clear what caused the blast, but investigators were examining the gas line outside the house on Friday, KARE reported.
