Response to Omaha Steve (Original post)

Mon Nov 12, 2012, 03:38 PM

18. I was suspicious at first when I saw the "For Sale" sign...

in the foreground of a pic at the site of the explosion, that the home had been for sale, by owner. Then, reading the article at the Indy Star site, some neighbors had said that the homeowner and her daughter had been staying elsewhere, while the whereabouts of a boyfriend were unknown.

Now, this article confirms that Indiana real estate records show Shirley's house had been for sale for a year until it was taken off the market in March.

I thought that most modern furnaces were equipped with electronic ignitions, so that burning pilot lights were no longer necessary, thus eliminating the danger of any gas accumulating. This article's explanation still seems screwy to me and if that furnace had actually been serviced within the past week, I certainly would not want to be the person who was responsible for that!
