Explosion destroys home in Siskiyou County

McCloud, Calif. – Firefighters responded to a home explosion in McCloud, California Wednesday.

Around 12:30 p.m., firefighters from McCloud, Mount Shasta, and CAL FIRE responded to a property on the Mount Shasta Forest Estates after a report of an explosion. 

First responders confirmed no one was home and there were no reported injuries.
