Basement explosion rocks house in Sandwich

Posted by wlpo on July 13, 2016

Things could’ve been a lot worse when a home exploded in Sandwich.

Firefighters were called just after four Wednesday afternoon for a basement explosion. The homeowner, Mark Mikyska says he had a company working on a propane tank in the front yard before the explosion. He thinks with some propane in the basement, it ignited when a sump pump turned on.

While no one was hurt the American Red Cross is helping out the Mikyska family.
