Pennsylvania home EXPLODES and after suspect ‘threatened code enforcement officer with a gun then barricaded himself inside 

 

At least three Pennsylvania homes were engulfed in flames after a man threatened a code enforcement officer with a gun and barricaded himself when police arrived.

The homeowner went back inside and ‘a short amount of time later there were multiple loud explosions’ and then fire swallowed the townhouse and spread to the next door homes, Lower Providence Township Chief of Police Mike Jackson said during a press conference.

The code enforcement officer was following up on an inspection in an Eagleville home – about 25 miles outside of Philadelphia – shortly before 1pm when the the homeowner took out a gun.

The code enforcement officer ran and called police. Responding officers talked to the man outside, Jackson said, before he went back inside and the home exploded.

Officers are still looking for the suspect, ‘who may or may or may not be inside the residence,’ Jackson said.

News helicopters showed flames ripping through the buildings.

Firefighters wrestled with the inferno for nearly three hours until they got it under control.

The flames jumped from one home to the next and caused parts of one of the homes to collapse.

Everyone was told to stay away from the scene, which was swarmed by SWAT teams and fire departments.

One person suffered minor injuries and is being treated at a hospital, Jackson said.

It’s still unknown at this point what caused the
