She called 911 at a neighbor’s house while hearing more explosion noises.

The Battalion Chief says, when crews arrived, all floors of the home were on fire.

Luckily, no one was injured, but the home is a loss.

Fire Department officials say the fire started in the rear of the house under the back porch roof.

After crews sifted through the fire debris multiple electrical failures were found, according to investigators.

At this point this fire is no longer under investigation by the Paris Fire Department.
