DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit fire crews are searching for the cause of an explosion and fire that raced through a house on the city's east side sending a 54-year-old woman to the hospital.

Video from 300 block of Leicester Ct. shows much of the home engulfed in flames as crews worked to douse the building with water.

FOX 2's Amy Lange reports from the home located a few blocks west of the Chrysler Freeway that relatives of the victim say she was taken to the hospital suffering from burns, but is expected to survive.
