[/quote] Ok, if that was a problem, why wasn't the gas shut off & neighbors made aware? My daughters neighbor has gas, she does not. Her home has a carbon monoxide reader, because her neighbor had a gas leak. All the surrounding neighbors were made aware, and installed readers. My point: If it was bad enough to make them rent a hotel room...this would have been known by neighbors. It's just common sense. [/quote] Just FYI (in the interests of safety) a carbon monoxide reader is of no use in a gas leak. [/quote] been following since beginning of thread. this article brings several questions to mind. who was called to inspect the furnace and when? why was the gas not shut off to the residence? according to the utility co., no calls were made to them. I'm certain that arson investigators will be checking into these claims as well as personal finances of these people. were they behind on payments? was house for sale? it would be interesting to know what they took to motel with them.did they take personal records or keepsakes? I truly hope it wasn't a case of arson. [/quote] The 1st thing I thought of was the house filling up w/ gas. The trigger could of been a fridge kicking on or anything that emits a small spark. Bad furnace...lazy HVAC guy...big house...big BOOM. Or it coulda been the aliens, who knows. [/quote] Bad furnace, neglect on the gas company and HVAC guys. Gas built up in that basement reached a spark and ignited. The concrete block basement walls acted like the barrel of a cannon and Ka-Boom!!! From the looks of it, must have been an ignition source from the 1st floor. That whole basement was full of gas, for your average, maybe about 15,000 cubic feet of Gas. Anyone have an idea what force 15,000 cubic feet of methane would have if ignited? [/quote]
Maybe 20-30 minutes ago? Felt like a car crashed HARD into the house... went outside and all the neighbors were coming out reporting the same. It was LOUD and gave the house a JOLT.
Then family members started calling to ask if it happened here too (they are also in S or SE Indianapolis).
Anyone else? I looked but didn't see a thread and nothing on the local news yet...
