What Was So Unusual Inside New York State House Before it Exploded? 

A home in upstate New York exploded in early September after a car collided with it.

WKTV says that a stolen car, driven by a teenager, collided with a house in the City of Oneida early in the morning. The crash served a natural gas line causing the house to explode around three hours later, say officials.

Police say the house, as well as six neighboring homes, sustained "substantial damage".

But while no one was seriously hurt from the blast, what the NY State DEC found inside the house that was hit surprised them.

New York State DEC officers said they found a six-point, white-tailed deer being kept inside a dog crate inside the home. The DEC says that the "homeowner was illegally rehabilitating the animal and had refused to release it, choosing instead to keep it as a pet." WKTV says that the DEC helped remove the deer from the house.
