House explodes on live TV

A HOUSE has exploded into a giant fireball following the dramatic shooting of a police officer in the US.

Footage shows the house, in Brentwood, New Hampshire, erupting into flames just minutes before it exploded.

It is understood the house was the scene of a dramatic shooting just minutes earlier between a suspect and a police officer.

A SWAT team reportedly drove away from the home as the fire broke out and just minutes before it exploded.

The officer was flown to hospital in a serious condition while the suspect remains at large, NECN reported.
