NORWALK - Crews remained at the scene of a Norwalk house explosion Wednesday combing through the ash and rubble.

The home exploded due to a gas main break Tuesday, leaving a family homeless for the holidays. Firefighters say they received the call at 9:30 p.m. The blast blew the roof off of the Ohio Avenue home and sent flames shooting into the air.

Andrea and Jim Wuffleuff and their 18-month-old son were able to escape. Jim Wuffleuff, however, suffered burns to his hands and face. The couple had apparently smelled the gas and was trying to find the source of the leak when the explosion occurred.
