2 hurt during explosion at Long Grove home, 50 others damaged

A large explosion leveled a home and damaged 50 others in a northwest suburban subdivision Friday night, prompting an emergency response from multiple jurisdictions and startling residents in neighboring communities miles away.

Crews are still on the scene investigating this morning, said a dispatcher for the Countryside Fire Protection District. The dispatcher confirmed that no one was inside the main home, which is about 5,000 square feet, and about 50 other nearby homes within a quarter of a mile radius sustained “moderate to severe damage.”
