Investigators believe a gas leak is to blame for an explosion that tore through a Sacramento-area home Wednesday morning.

The blast triggered a fire that gutted the North Highlands home just after 3 pm. The damage is so bad, the whole house may have to be torn down. Fortunately, no one was hurt. The family is out-of-town.

Firefighters say they found a leak in the dining room-living room area.
