Three people have been injured, two critically, after a home exploded Monday in Montgomery, according to news outlet WTOC.

Fire units responded about 7 a.m. Monday to a residence on Pin Point Avenue, according to WTOC, which cited Chatham County Emergency Services. A fire started after the explosion, the news outlet reported.

A 45-year-old, a 14-year-old and a 4-month-old were injured, WTOC reported, citing CES. All were taken to the burn unit in Augusta, according to WTOC.

“We got on scene and we found the house completely involved. It appears there was some type of explosion. As you look around the ground here, you’ll see windows and glass blown into the street; the cars that were in the driveway were melted and damaged,” CEO of Chatham EMS Chuck Kearns told WTOC.

Montgomery is about 258 miles southeast of Atlanta and is near Savannah.

The cause of the explosion is being investigated, according to WTOC.
