JEFFERSON COUNTY(KMOV.com) -- Firefighters were on the scene of a house fire near  Eureka Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters say there was an explosion at the home on Grandview Trail around 12:30. The explosion could be seen and heard for miles, authorities told News 4. 

No one was home at the time of the explosion and there were no injuries reported.

Fire crews say there is no access to water, so they had to call in pumper trucks from around the area. Nearly fifty firefighters were called in to battle the blaze.
