IONIA, Mich. — The Ionia Department of Public Safety says no one was injured when a wood burning stove exploded outside someone’s home.

It happened in the 1300 block of Dildine Road around 3 a.m. Thursday.

Deputies say the stove was inside an enclosure and began building up pressure before landing in the neighbor’s yard.

The steel burner stopped 150 feet away from the home it was being used to heat, almost hitting the home next door.
