The TV station is referring to this explosion at a house fire in Dayton, Ohio early this morning as both a backdraft and a flashover. I will let you decide.
A house exploded while crews were battling a fire on Campbell Street, throwing debris at firefighters on the porch.
“Fortunately, we’re trained to recognize things going on,” said Assistant Chief Jeffrey Payne, Dayton Fire Department. “We have some excellent fire gear that keeps us safe.”
No one was injured during the explosion or the fire, Payne said.
The fire started in the home’s basement, said Payne, but an actual cause of the fire has yet to be established.
