These are pics from a set of condo units that blew up this morning. We could hear the blast although the town is about 18 miles away.

Once a house on the street behind us blew up and that is exactly what it looked like. . . matchsticks!

The photos are just shocking. How very sad.

I looked for details and from what I read, they think the explosion was the result of a propane gas leak. Terrible.

Wow, that was some explosion. Poor man that died. Now I'm afraid to get a propane tank.

Today's paper had much more on this. The man that died was severely handicapped. Maybe gas was leaking and he did not know.

A house on the street behind us blew up years ago, I was combing my bichon on the kitchen counter and the blast knocked her right off.

It looked just like the destruction in these pictures.

Only will increase my husband's aversion to gas!
