The house at 27 Hansborough St. exploded around 9:20 p.m., sending twelve people to the hospital - two with serious injuries - the Boston Fire Department reports.
The apparent natural-gas explosion pushed the house off its foundation and led to its partial collapse. The resulting fire went to three alarms.
Residents of surrounding homes were evacuated. National Grid gave the OK to let them return around midnight.
