WITNESSES TO EXPLOSION | 'It was a tremendous boom'
LOCHEARN, Md. (WBFF) - Robert Fisher was outside sweeping up some leaves when he suddenly heard the explosion.
There is only one house in between him and the house that blew up.
He said: “It was a tremendous boom. That's where the explosion occurred, and the debris came this way. I was lucky."
He ran to check on neighbors. “Like a crazy guy, I went in," explained Fisher.
Another neighbor, Mildred Carpenter, described the explosion as a "ten," and now she wants everyone to pray for those left homeless because of the damage - "so everyone that knows the word of prayer need to pray for the lady. You don't need to know her name; just pray for her”.
