BRENTWOOD, Suffolk County (WABC) — A woman and child escaped an apparent propane explosion at a home on Long Island that sparked a large fire.

It happened on Peters Drive in Brentwood at around 11:15 a.m. on Thursday.

Flames could be seen shooting from the roof and spread through the home.

Propane tanks on the back of the house were “compromised” according to officials with the relief valve for the tanks open. It’s not yet known if they might have been tampered with.

Firefighters continued to put out hotspots into the afternoon.
