Quote:CANOGA PARK, Calif. (KABC) -- An explosion at a home in West Hills on Wednesday significantly damaged the structure and scattered debris across a residential block, prompting a response from firefighters and police.

Two people were inside the single-story house, in the 7500 block of Sale Avenue, when the blast happened shortly after 3 p.m. No active fire occurred and no one was injured, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Paramedics evaluated three young children at the scene. It was unclear if those children were at the day care center located next door to the damaged house.

"We heard this giant, like, boom," said neighbor Jordan C'Dealva-Lenik. "At first, we thought it was the big one and we were really scared. So me and my mother, we ran out of the house because we didn't know. The whole house was shaking. We didn't feel any more tremors after that, so we said, OK, it's not an earthquake."

Southern California Gas Company officials and firefighters from three fire companies ensured that utilities were shut down at the location as a precaution, officials said.
