A neighbor helped prevent a complete disaster for one Summit County home.

Tollgate resident Jana Lee Corn was just pulling into her driveway after working on Tuesday evening when she noticed a smell of propane.

Wasatch County Fire

As we’ve reported Sunday afternoon a home in the Timber Lakes subdivision blew up in a fiery explosion. This was the second house in a months’ time to explode into flames in the Timber Lakes division.

Wasatch County Fire District Public Spokeswoman Janet Carson says there’s no connection between the two explosions other than they are both homes Timber Lakes area, and that propane very well could have contributed in both cases.

The Wasatch County Fire District is reporting that an explosion Sunday destroyed a cabin in the Timber Lakes development—the second such instance in less than a month in the same neighborhood.

The Fire District said that the explosion occurred Sunday afternoon, in the development east of Heber.

They said no one was in the home and no one was injured in the explosion.

Fire personnel reported that the roof of the structure had collapsed by the time they arrived. Debris from the explosion was blown at least 200 feet around the cabin.

The Mountain Subdivision called Timber Lakes sits in the hills east of Heber. The city fire officials are always concerned about this area because it is so dry and covered with scrub oak. A house fire was reported in the early hours of Friday morning and if not for the recent rain and a vigilent homeowner’s association, the outcome could have been catastrophic for many property owners in the neighborhood.
