A Cayuga County emergency dispatcher said neighbors reported that they heard an explosion at 9:46 p.m. The front porch of 8407 Jericho Road, Brutus was reported to be "engulfed in flames," said the dispatcher.

Authorities were redirecting traffic away from Jericho Road as fire crews fought to put out the flames.
