28. I'm wondering the same things about that "faulty" furnace...

being that it is a fairly newer subdivision, so it couldn't have been an old-time cranky furnace. There are so many fail-safe systems built into modern gas appliances, with electronic sensors and other such gadgets that prevent any gas from entering the device if it is non-functioning.

I think that the co-owners of those homes, the divorced couple, the Shirleys, have quite a bit of 'xplaining to do, concerning this tragic disaster.

I also haven't a doubt that it could have been natural gas that exploded to destroy the neighborhood. I saw the results of such force decades ago in Cincinnati, Ohio, when one home was totally disintegrated and similar damage to surrounding houses occurred. Of course, those neighboring structures back then were older homes, built with actual sturdy wood, rather than fiber board/pressed wood product, so they were better able to withstand the power of the blast. But windows were blown out for blocks around and it was also a whopper of an explosion.
