JERSEY CITY -

An oxygen tank flew through the air and landed inside someone's house in Jersey City.

The incident happened on Western Avenue.

The tank made a hole above the garage.

Luckily, no one was injured.

A tenant thought it was an explosion.

"It's very surprising because it's a row house and my house got hit and I was in the center, so I didn't expect it,” says Arlene Silvestre. “Nobody expected that."

Arlene wasn't home at the time. 

There is no word on where the tank came from or what caused it to fly.
