TRACY (CBS13) – Twenty homes in Tracy were evacuated for over an hour after an explosion went off inside a home.
Tracy fire and police investigators are still trying to piece together the details that led to the blast at the home in the 1300 block of Crossroads Drive at around 3:30 p.m., say Tracy police.
