Before you starting a home project involving chemicals, consider what happened in the town of Independence, Iowa Thursday. A house was destroyed while the homeowners were refinishing the floors.
Neighbors reporting hearing an explosion and then aw the flames. Firefighters, who were just one minute away, found the house fully engulfed when they arrived.
Investigators say the homeowners left to run some errands while re-finishing the floors. It appears something ignited the fumes. Strong wind caused more trouble for the firefighters. They hosed off nearby homes to keep the fire from spreading.
