Residents of the northwest suburbs were jostled awake after a late night explosion in Long Grove. A natural gas leak is suspected, but the investigation is on-going.

Miraculously, no one was hurt in the explosion.

Neighbor Joyce Link, who lives two blocks away from the home that exploded said she understood that her neighbor, Sheryl Sheiner, the owner of the home that was leveled to the ground, saw flames coming out of an outdoor generator around 10:30 Friday night.

Sheiner, who was home alone, walked out of her home to call 911 and within three minutes it went up, said Link, who used to have house dinners with the Sheiners and other local couples.
