Danny McCormick, Powell County emergency management director, has said that the explosion might have been caused by a propane explosion in the basement.
Officials said the blast blew out the basement walls and the home's windows, and it sent the front door flying more than 20 feet.
"The house is pretty much leveled," McCormick said Thursday.
