VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTVR) – An explosion in Virginia Beach sends debris into trees, breaks windows, destroys two vehicles and a garage.

The fire department says flammable gases from a heating and air conditioning business leaked overnight.

The truck owner triggered entry to the truck using a key fob, and that set off an explosion.

The  man who on his way to the truck  was thrown to the ground, but not hurt. No one was hurt, though the debris hit neighboring properties.
