House fire dangerously close to propane tank

Somerville Volunteer Firefighters could not save a house from destruction overnight, but they did avert a larger disaster just in time.

When firefighters arrived shortly after 9:30 p.m.Wednesday, they saw flames shooting out of the doors and windows at a home on Lockhart Road.

A patch of grass under a propane tank near the home was also on fire.

Firefighters were able to put the fire out before that tank exploded, but the house is destroyed.

No injuries were reported.
