Emergency crews rushed to a house explosion near the intersection of 31st Street and Grand Avenue in south Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon.

The Star Tribune says around 4 p.m., firefighters responded to the home, which partially collapsed.

There were no reports of injuries from the explosion, according to WCCO TV. However, a dog was found dead in the home, the Pioneer Press reported.

“I heard two big explosions and I kind of felt it through my chest," neighbor Ray Cloutier told the newspaper.

Sources with the fire department told FOX 9 that a gas explosion caused the front porch to collapse.

KARE 11 and FOX 9 has a live feed from their helicopter.

Here are some images tweeted by reporters at the scene.
