YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - Surveillance video shows a cloud of smoke as the roof blows off an Ypsilanti home and the windows shatter.
It happened near the intersection of Foley Avenue and Gattengno Sunday afternoon.
Authorities say a woman and her six-month-old baby managed to make it out of the home safely.
Officials say a man was injured in the explosion. But in the moments following the blast, that man couldn't be found. He reportedly went back into the burning home to find his dog. He later turned up at University of Michigan Hospital.
Fire officials say the blast appears to be suspicious and are investigating.
