    A pickup truck crashed into a home in Millbury, Massachusetts, overnight causing the house to erupt in flames. 

    Millbury Fire says the truck severed the gas meter as it struck the home on Grafton Street around 2:30 a.m. Saturday. 

    “I was getting ready to go to bed and I heard a boom and that’s when I went upstairs and I looked outside from the second floor window and the whole house was just an inferno,” neighbor Karen Debaros said.

    The pickup drove right through Debaros' yard before crashing into her neighbor's house.

    "We had a sign there for the garage. He took down the sign. Then he went right across into the house," she said.
