One body found in debris of South St. Paul house ravaged by explosions and fire

The blaze erupted about 6:18 a.m. in a neighborhood near I-494, officials said

A house exploded before dawn Thursday in South St. Paul, where emergency responders found one person dead amid the debris.

The multiple blasts and flames coming from the home in the 1200 block of 9th Avenue S. lit the dark sky a bright orange and sent grayish smoke skyward high enough to be captured on multiple traffic cameras along Interstate 494.

The explosions occurred at 6:18 a.m., the flames were quickly extinguished, and fire crews were still on the scene hours later, said South Metro Fire Chief Mark Juelfs.
