Posted: Updated:

FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Right after the home on Cheryl Drive exploded, a neighbor filmed a short clip of the chaotic scene. 

Derrick Powe recorded the footage with his camera phone.  It shows the immediate devastation and Brian Grittner getting help from first responders.

"Mind-blown, I was like what?" Powe said about his first thoughts on the explosion.  Powe awoke from a nap to the nightmare, just four doors down. 

"I thought we were under attack,"Powe said as he grabbed his cell phone and shot several short clips of the scene.

"The house was in pieces everywhere, animals were going crazy, yea it was chaos," Powe said.

And for this 21-year-old, it still is. 

"I missed my first day of work, I can't go in my house, for some reason they don't even know," Powe said.
