VIDEOS: Two adults and four children were injured in a house explosion in West Brandywine Township, Chester County, officials said.
The incident was first reported just before 12 p.m. Wednesday on the 400 block of Hibernia Road. Firefighters and EMS responded to the home and found the victims suffering from burn injuries.
Officials said one adult and two children were flown from the scene by medical helicopter to an area hospital. Two others were taken to a hospital by ambulance, and one person refused treatment.
Linsey Carpenter, who lives nearby, said she heard the explosion and went to help.
"We saw the little girl run across the street. We grabbed her and checked her out. Her hair was singed, her eyebrows were singed. Then the little boy came out and that's when the flames started," she said.
