Several homes in and around the area were damaged by the house explosion. Windows were blown out of their homes and have since been boarded up. 

Officials with the Red Cross tell us their doors will remain open until the investigation into the explosion is completed.

"Basically, trying to find a place for them to go, helping them with their long-term recovery, finding new homes for them if they need them. For the folks that really weren't affected, if certain items were damaged, Red Cross can work with other agencies to meet those needs," according to a volunteer.
