    Crews responded Sunday to a fire at a home in Methuen, Massachusetts.

    The fire occurred at 40 Timber Lane, and the homeowner says it started after an aerosol can exploded.

    Peter Michael tells NBC10 Boston that he raced home to see his house engulfed in flames. He says his wife and 4-month-old daughter escaped just in time.

    It started when an aerosol can was accidentally dropped on the basement floor and somehow ignited, according to Michael.
