A Marengo home explosion (center) destroyed a neighboring home, (right) and severly damaged a third (far left) and left eight to 10 more houses uninhabitable and sent two people to the hospital around 5 a.m. Sunday. Marengo Fire Chief Bob Bradbury said at least 40 additional homes in the neighborhood were affected by debris. A damage estimate isn't yet available. The owners of the home where the explosion initiated weren't home at the time of the incident, but there were animals inside.
