Neighbours' horror as 'huge blast' rips through terraced house forcing terrified residents to flee | The Sun01/22/2023
A HUGE blast ripped through a terraced house in the early hours of this morning, residents say.
Terrified locals were forced to flee the normally quiet street in Goole, East Yorkshire, following the "explosion".
Many found safety in a nearby parish church, where they huddled among the pews.
One described it as "like a scene from the Blitz" as 999 workers moved to clear the wreckage.
An East Yorkshire Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed no one was injured.
But families were ordered to leave their homes as police, firefighters and gas workers sealed off the area in Marlborough Avenue.

The whole upper floor appears to have been blown out, leaving just a burnt shell.
And the downstairs windows look to be missing, with rubble piled up by the front door.
