BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A home in Battle Creek exploded and caught fire Saturday evening, shaking the homes of nearby residents.

The Battle Creek Fire Department was dispatched to a home on Lamora Ave. around 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening.  Neighbors reported hearing a large explosion shortly before the fire engulfed the home.

The home was unoccupied at the time and nobody in the nearby area sustained any injuries. Though the surrounding structures did sustain minimal damage due to the explosion, the quick response time of the Fire Department stopped the potential for the fire to spread to other homes.

    Set a small goal to begin with to relieve water retention and
    lose excess unwanted fat. There are numerous colon cleaning products currently out there
    which are quite effective, but also for my money, when selecting which product to use, I would generally
    go looking to utilize one that is made up of 100% natural ingredients.
    It will require around 7-10 days to accomplish a cleanse and
    results can begin being noticed within the first three days.
