17 Explosions Across 3 Different Mass Towns

 

I suspect a underground gas leak, the gas followed pipes back to the buildings, gas infiltrated and accumulated in  the buildings, and some spark ignited the gas, light switch, water heater, anything with a contact.

How strange to watch the TV one minute with so much rain and water to devastate the South, then the next few minutes so much fire to destroy so many houses in the North.

Just so sad to watch either channel, hoping for safety for all.

We had a huge gas explosion here a few years ago. One apartment complex. And it took a massive effort on the part of the fire department.

 

So I can’t even imagine what trying to fight this looks like. Smiley Sad

So far 10 injured - 2 critical - no one still has a plausible explanation - a house here and there in  dozens of neighborhoods across three towns - 17 Explosions - 70 + Structures Damaged by Fire 

 

Strange Occurence - None of the Experts - Gas Company - Fire Dept. - Never seen anything like it

Firefighters battle a house fire, in North Andover, Mass., one of a series of gas explosions and fires triggered Thursday by a problem with a gas line that feeds several communities north of Boston.

Massachusetts State Police have confirmed officials are responding to 70 house fires, explosions or reports of gas odors — possibly caused by gas leaks — around the towns of Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, on Thursday evening, warning that the "number will grow."

Officials urged all residents in the area who are Columbia Gas customers to evacuate, "as should anyone else who smells gas."
