MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Four Memphis firefighters are recovering after a Frayser home suddenly exploded as they were trying to tame roaring flames in what became a two-alarm blaze Thursday.

Firefighters said the explosion happened just before 5:00 p.m. Thursday in the 3600 block of Suzanne Drive near Mountain Terrace Road.

Six people were inside the home when it caught fire.  All escaped unharmed, but one person went back inside to save a puppy.

Two firefighters were rushed to the MED in non-critical condition.  One had a hip injury, the other hurt his back and right arm.

A third fireman was taken to Methodist North for heat exhaustion, and a fourth was treated on the scene.

Heat was also a factor in this fire.
