House Explosion In FDL

Fond du Lac firefighters are at the scene of a house explosion south of the Holy Family Parish Church. Fire Chief Peter O’Leary says a duplex under construction exploded in the area of Twilight Trails and Moonlight Lane. It happened just before 5 a.m.  Nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution. A neighbor told authorities the duplex wasn’t occupied. The explosion rattled homes across the City and could be felt as far away as the KFIZ studios on Winnebago Drive. It’s not known yet if any neighbors suffered injuries, but there was a lot of debris at the scene of the explosion. Picture courtesy Fond du Lac Fire Dept.
