A propane tank explosion ripped through a Townsend house yesterday evening, leveling the property in a fiery blast that was heard and felt throughout the neighborhood, State Fire Marshal Stephen D. Coan said. No one was in the house at 10 Barker Hill Rd., when the large tank attached to it exploded at about 5:30 p.m. Surrounding houses received minor damage, and Deputy Townsend Fire Chief David Roy said no injuries were reported.
