A gas leak could be behind an explosion that demolished a bungalow near the village of Beulah in West Wales on Saturday evening, according to Mid & West Wales Fire service.
An investigation is continuing into the cause of the blast, which reduced the property to little more than rubble.
Firefighters scoured the remains for survivors when they arrived on the scene after the explosion.
The family who own the property were reportedly on holiday on the Greek island of Crete when they were traced by police and informed of the incident.
