A man was taken to the hospital with injuries after a fire and explosion at a home in the suburbs east of Baltimore, Maryland, a fire official said.

Firefighters responded to the two-alarm fire late Saturday, the Baltimore County Fire Department said in a statement on social media.

In photos shared by the department, the home on Ridgemoor Road in Essex, Maryland, appeared completely destroyed by the blast.

Crews were expected to be on scene “for an extended period of time,” the department said. Hazmat and fire investigators were en route to the scene, officials said.

The injured man was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Lt. Twana Allen said in an email to ABC News.
