A Small Leak Causes a Huge Explosion

Recently, it was determined that a house explosion in New Jersey was caused by a gas leak beneath a couple’s home. At the time of the explosion, two people were inside the house. The mayor of the city where the explosion occurred heard the blast and looked out the window to see smoke and people running in the direction of his home.

The mayor ran towards the home where the explosion occurred and found that neighbors were pulling the two people who were inside at the time of the explosion out of the rubble that was once their home. Upon further investigation and gas leak detection, it was discovered that the cause of the explosion was due to a gas leak that occurred as a result of the home being in the process of switching over from propane to natural gas.
