Cause of Explosion in Johnstonville Residence Still Under Investigation

Thursday, September 9th, 2021

Investigators from the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office are seeking the cause of an early morning explosion in a residence on Diamond Crest Road in Johnstonville that blew out a wall of the house, but left the residents uninjured.

At around  1:40a.m., Sunday, deputies responded to a report of an explosion in the Diamond Crest area. Officers from the California Highway Patrol were able to hear the explosion from their office, which is located nearby, and immediately responded.

Deputies arrived to investigate along with a Cal-Fire Prevention Officer.

“CHP located the residence where the explosion occurred,” explains LCSO Sergeant Dustin Russell. “The explosion caused a wall of the residence to be blown into the neighbor’s tree. The residents were home sleeping in another area of the house and did not know the cause of the explosion.”

There were no reported injuries from the explosion.

The cause of the explosion is under investigation and anyone with information is encouraged to call the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 257-6121.
