One person was rushed to Shock Trauma after a house exploded in Baltimore Highlands Monday afternoon.
Baltimore County firefighters were called to the 2800 block of Virginia Ave in Baltimore Highlands for a home explosion just after 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Investigators say there were two separate explosions that were followed by a large fire. The cause of the fire and explosions are still unknown, but investigators say it started in the basement.
