I wonder if it was a gas explosion?

though would that take out "several houses"?

Seen a hot water heater explosion take out a house but it didn't damage neighboring houses.

There was a gas explosion a couple years back in the town next to ours, and we felt/heard it. Adjoining houses weren't destroyed, but heavily damaged.

We get complacent about having an explosive gas pumped into our homes... :)

There was one a few years ago in Indianapolis area, where it was part of an attempted "Insurance scheme". Woman's "boyfriend" and another guy "set it up", and pumped the place full before triggering it. A couple in another house a couple of lots away were killed. Flattened everything for a radius. (like a whole block ?)

Suckers are rotting, as they should be.

About 7-8 years ago there was a propane tank explosion in a trailer park, about 3/4 of a mile from my drummer’s house.

He discovered the next day that someone’s screen door was in one of his trees.
I've driven a food truck for years, it has a 100 lb propane tank strapped to it. Every time I have to go somewhere I think of a million final destination scenarios.

Gas explosions can take out several blocks.
