Explosion in Long Island leaves 10 without homes

Ten people are out of their homes this morning on Long Island after a blast rocked their Brentwood neighborhood on Easter Sunday.

Amazingly, no one was seriously hurt but the blast ripped apart a vacant home and sent debris all over the block.

One neighbor says the force of the explosion blew out the windows of his house and ripped his front door off its hinges.

The cause of the blast is currently under investigation.
