Madison Fire Chief Steven Davis says the department is in "search and rescue" mode as they aren't certain if anyone was inside the house when the explosion occurred. One person in the area and a firefighter were hurt, although the injuries are not serious.   

Residents in the immediate area likely won't be allowed to return to their homes Wednesday night.  

 The Red Cross is on scene and residents who live in the area are being asked to check in with police who will assist with retrieving valuables and medications and help with finding lodging for tonight.


Madison firefighters are on the scene of a home explosion at 7907 Stratton Way.

Fire officials confirm that the house is fully engulfed. A witness reported that it "looks like it exploded with no standing structure."

Firefighters currently report an active fire that that are working to control.

We currently are on the scene and will have updates shortly.
