Truck Crashes Into Lansing House; Starts Gas Fire

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - A Lansing homeowner has some cleaning-up to do today after a truck crashed into their house early this morning, starting a fire.

It all happened around the 12:30 in the 500 block of Doris Street on Lansing's south side.

Officials on scene tell 6 News five teens were in the vehicle when it apparently lost control, hit the house, and severed a gas line. Gas leaked out, starting the vehicle fire, which then spread to the home.

That forced the evacuation of that house and several others in the area.

Fire fighters were able to contain and then put out the flames and utility crews shut off the power.

Police say no one was hurt, and the 19-year old driver was cited.  The investigation continues.
