LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Flames roared from a house in Lansing, early on Tuesday morning.
Residents of the Foster neighborhood were woken by a fire and sirens shortly before 2 a.m., on the 600 block of North Foster Avenue.
Officials with the Lansing Fire Department told 6 News that two fires occurred, in one home.
The cause of the initial fire is still under investigation- although a Lansing Fire Chief said the flames were intense enough to burn through the hose to the gas meter, causing secondary flames.
This morning, the road was blocked off and the Lansing Police and Lansing Fire Department were present.

The Chief said the Fire Department kept everything contained until Consumers Energy was able to shut off the gas.
