The fatal explosion in Michigan comes just one day after a blast leveled an upstate New York house at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday, in what was described as “a big flame ball.” The explosion in New York was caught on a neighbor’s doorbell camera, in Monroe County just outside of Rochester.

It did not appear that anyone was inside the upstate New York home at the time of the explosion and the cause is under investigation, according to NBC affiliate WHEC.
