A Bradford County man is homeless after his modular home was completely destroyed by a fire Tuesday.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire, and the explosions, is still under investigation.
Litchfield firefighters received help at the scene from members of the Athens Borough, Athens Township and Rome fire departments.
The Red Cross provided snacks and drinks for firefighters and is also helping Arnold with temporary housing and clothing.
