North Haven First Selectman Michael J. Freda said in a press conference that a woman was being barricaded in the home for three days.
The woman was able to escape the home, Freda said.
At least six people have been injured and were transported to area hospitals, including a SWAT team member, who had a wound to his leg.
The suspect has not been located by police, but the police department said there is no current threat to the public.
Several SWAT members had gotten close to the home and were ready to go in before the explosion happened.
The explosion happened around 8:15 p.m., according to witnesses.
Seven people were brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital as a result of the incident. All are under evaluation. Their injuries are minor, cuts and scrapes from the explosion.
