Amazing Explosion of House on Fire Airs on Newscast after Policeman Shot in New Hampshire
This afternoon viewers were shocked at the sight of a New Hampshire home exploding as policemen responded to a officer-involved shooting during a live newscast. A Vine-user posted it on the video publishing service:
Television footage showed smoke pouring from the upper floor of the home, which was quickly becoming engulfed by flames. Then, without warning, the home exploded around 5:45 p.m. ET.
The police officer who was shot was reportedly flown to nearby Exeter Hospital by helicopter, where he is in serious condition.

Shortly before the explosion, media crews and neighbors were told to get back, out of concerns that the fire might spread.
We hope the police officer wasn’t harmed seriously. We’ll update the stories with more details as they become available.
