LANSING, Mich. (KXAN/WLNS) — “Raise the roof” is normally an expression used at parties, but in this case it describes what happened when a Michigan house exploded.

6 News has the dash-cam footage from the Lansing Fire Department that shows the explosion.

The video is of the home on Pennsylvania Avenue erupting in flames after an SUV hit a car propelling it into the home severing the gas line.

Fire fighters responding to the scene immediately evacuated the neighboring homes.

Fire fighters had just left the house seconds before the explosion.

No one was hurt in the accident.
