An apparent gas explosion and subsequent fire destroyed a house on the 7400 block Remoor Road in Woodmoor earlier today. Several neighboring houses were also damaged, including two homes on opposite blocks.

Fire investigators and BGE personnel were called to the scene to determine the actual cause of the explosion.

It was not clear if any serious injuries were reported.

A number of dogs were seen being removed from an adjacent property. One fire official said a dog had possible injuries.

One block south of the explosion, on 7400 block of Shirley Road, the home of Wanda Gray sustained damage on the opposite side of the house facing the explosion. Gray said she was not home at the time of the explosion but a family member was at the residence. Gray said the family member was not injured.

Damage was also evident on the Johnson residence on the 7400 block of Digby Road – one block north of the explosion.

The following photos were taken at the scene by staff photographer Michael Jordan.
