COOLBAUGH TOWNSHIP — Flames destroyed a home Wednesday night in Monroe County.

Firefighters rushed to a home on Bunny Lane in Pocono Farms, a development near Tobyhanna, around 11:30 p.m.

Crews thought that the sound of explosions was ammunition but now believe it was aerosol cans exploding.

Authorities say everyone who lived inside escaped, but the home is a total loss.  No one was hurt.

A state police fire marshal is investigating.
