    So sorry to hear about the two neighbors. May their family, friends and the community find comfort in each other.

    I've been reading up on this and I certainly hope it was an "accident". Myself and apparently a few other people think something may be fishy with the house/residents who lived there. Per the estanged hubby/father of the woman and daughter who lived there, she was at the casino with her bf, the daughter staying with friends..AND the CAT was being boarded. I don't know how long their stay was to be, but unless you're gone for a few days..no need to board a cat, imo. Also, she had an RO against the X...sole custody, tried to sell the house earlier this year but took it off the market and the daughter notified him they had to spend the night outside of the home recently because they had problems with the furnace. The spokesperson for the gas company also stated there had been high usage of gas from the home. The fire inspector kept repeating the cause is still under investigation...with nothing to add from reporter's questions. I so hope this wasn't intentional. I thought maybe a dozen homes...but's it's 80!!!! That was one heck of an explosion....

    still no cause... no leaks found in gas lines... now investigators are looking at the appliances in the homes... http://www.azcentral.com/news/free/2...eak-found.html

    conspiracy theories are springing up galore on the various indy tv stations' fb pages...

    the boarding of the cat? too many to count find that very odd...

    It looks like someone seriously under estimated how big and powerful that blast was going to be. Blowing up property is one thing, now you are a double murderer. *smh*
