MADISON (WKOW) – Madison Fire Chief Steven Davis says one person who lives in the home that exploded and burned Wednesday has not been found, as investigators continue to comb through the rubble at the home at 7806 Stratton Way. 

Drone video shows the extent of the damage. The house is flattened and debris is strewn hundreds of feet out from the property.

A Madison Fire Department spokesperson says investigative operations will continue through Thursday. 

Chief Davis also reiterated what he stated Wednesday evening, that authorities have been in contact with another resident.

At a 4:00 p.m. Thursday update on the explosion, the fire chief said he is hopeful eight families in nearby homes - displaced by the explosion - will be able to return to those homes tonight.
