Rochester firefighters and police blocked off the area of 64 Illinois Street while they investigated the incident. The area reopened a little after 5 a.m. Thursday.
Firefighters say the Rochester home explosion happened at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
Crews for Rochester Gas and Electric (RG&E) said they were checking the area after neighbors called and said they smelled gas. A crew worker said a man inside the home would not answer the door, at which point the Rochester Fire Department was alerted.
“There were reports from people there was a person in the house,” fire chief Willie Jackson said.
