Crews handle explosion during 1st snow

As most of Franklin County was receiving its first snow of the season, Company 1 was out for a report of explosion in the 1100 block of South Main St. Engine 1-2 arrived in the area and was able to locate the residence. A water boiler in a detached garage had exploded causing significant damage to the building. Crews ensured the building was stabilized and requested the Building Code Official. EMS evaluated one and crews cleared the scene after the Building Code Official arrived and assessed the building.
