Posted: Updated:

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- An explosion rocked a Pompano Beach neighborhood after a company cleaning floors inside a home mixed various chemicals, causing an explosion and a small fire, Thursday morning.

Hazmat crews responded to the home at 249 S.E. 3rd Ave. after a small explosion followed by a fire sparked at the home around 9:30 a.m.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue said a company was cleaning terrazzo floors at the home and mixed several chemicals that caused the explosion.

Neighbors said they watched the smoke billow from the home until fire rescue arrived. "I was a bit concerned that there was gonna be flames coming over to our house, so I was keeping a close eye on it," said Mandy Wynne.

There were no reported injuries.

An inspector will determine if there was any structural damage.
