MYSTERY: Scrap yard cylinder crashes into house

- Jersey City authorities are still trying to figure out exactly what happened at a house on Friday morning. A 6-foot-long cylinder came flying from a scrap yard over on County Avenue and pierced the back wall of a house on Western Avenue, authorities said.

Nouha Jellouli said she couldn't believe what happened. Her apartment is a complete mess. Debris is everywhere and a giant hole is in the wall.

Around 10:30 a.m., the cylinder of a compressed gas tank somehow pierced through the cinder block wall and landing inside of the apartment.

Nouha was at work at the time. She said her landlord called her to tell her there was an explosion at the house. She said she started crying.

Neighbors were in disbelief as they ran out of their homes.  Luckily, no one was injured.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
