13 dogs dead following Pasco home explosion

- An explosion in a home in Pasco County has severely injured one, damaged two homes, and killed 13 dogs. 

Fire officials say they were called to a report of an explosion just after 7:00 p.m. in the 8000 block of Velvet Drive in Port Richey. 

Pasco Fire Chief Shawn Whited says both of the homes that were damaged in the explosion were sharing a generator for power. The generator was located in the garage of 1 of the homes, that's where investigators think the explosion occurred. 

The State Fire Marshal's Office is currently on scene investigating the incident.
