Baltimore Home Flooded After Water Heater Explosion

Posted on April 8th, 2011 No Comments

A faulty hot water heater exploded at a home in Baltimore Thursday.

According to officials with the Ballarat County Sheriff’s Department, a 50-gallon drum landed on the porch of a nearby home while the explosion destroyed the basement of a residence. Police say the hot water heater became a flying projectile, flying more than 200 feet into the air.

Firefighters say it was lucky nobody was injured in the explosion. “Luckily the explosion happened when nobody was in the factory,” County Fire Authority operations officer Bernie Fradd said. “The back of the building was pretty well destroyed. [The water heater] landed right on the porch, but if it went through a window or hit someone’s roof it could have been a disaster.”

Firefighters are investigating the explosion. Authorities say the home sustained structural damage, as well as flooding. The homeowners are staying with family until the investigation is complete.

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
