A camping gas cylinder exploded inside a Black Country home, blowing its front window into the garden and a door off its hinges.
Two men inside the house in The Straits in Lower Gornal, Dudley, escaped injury in the blast at 20:00 BST on Saturday.
Ambulance crews called to the property saw the house's front window lying in the garden on arrival.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said neither of the men needed further treatment.
