Gas leak blamed for house explosion

An investigation is underway after a vacant two-story house explodes and collapses into a pile of debris Sunday after noon.

Police in northern Kentucky are reviewing a tape of the explosion, captured by a surveillance camera at a nearby business.

Luckily no one was injured in the explosion, which police say was likely caused by a natural gas leak.

The blast sent debris and glass flying and blew out the windows in a nearby orthodontist's office.

We're told the home had been for sale for about a month.
