I'm not saying it was an exploding meth lab, but...

There should be a new feature: The houses of meth.

I was just down there today. It's a hell of a mess, and way too big to be just a meth lab explosion.

Of course, that doesn't rule out some tweaker messing with the gas lines.

Eek!

FTA: "...It was silent after that."

.. so, nothing like a war zone then.

Officials are trying to learn why a Saturday night house explosion and fire in a south Indianapolis neighborhood killed two people, flattened two homes, destroyed more than two dozen others and forced a whole neighborhood to evacuate.

My guess: Grandpa tried to set the clock on his microwave.

I just got a pic of a troll in a santa hat giving me the finger and saying "No Hotlinking"

I guess you could argue that it was indeed a better pic.

It's really sad - a 2nd grade teacher and her husband were killed. The school has a delay tomorrow so grief counselors can be ready. My husband and I were just getting to 465 when it happened. My friend that lives 5 minutes away text me that a plane had crashed nearby and they heard a loud explosion and the house shook. I guess the ground shook miles away. The reports that I saw said the house was vacant. My first thought was meth lab but if the house was vacant there was no one there to report a gas smell. Citizens Gas needs to get their shiat together on these lines. So freaking awful. I hope the victims went quickly and didn't even know what hit them.

My grandma always said she was afraid the computer would blow up if she touched it. Maybe she was right.

Seriously, tho, I'm waiting for the map overlay that shows a huge, >50 year old gas main running directly under the house. I'm not saying San Bruno but...

Umm...Holy Shiat!! That is a serious explosion. I've seen a "normal" gas explosion first-hand before and it blew out a wall. This is like MythBusters blowing up that cement truck with high explosives. Damn!!

I imagine they'll be out first thing in the morning issuing fines to every house in the neighborhood that has debris on the lawn.

Meth labs explode but not with THAT amount of force.

Heard earlier that a neighbor said the place seemed to be empty- no cars, lights, blinds drawn, etc. So I'm gonna put my money on a slow gas leak from a blown out pilot light or something like that. Fill up a house with the right amount of natural gas and you're right where this place is.

Are you sure that's not a hoax? There was an explosion in Minden, Louisiana a few weeks back that showed up on the weather radar, but that was because it had a mushroom cloud that went 7,000 feet up. (It was an ammo dump bunker that blew)

After looking at a picture, it seems to be too big for a meth lab.

So that leaves gas leak, terrorist making bombs gone wrong, ir some sort of fringe event with another universe.

I hope it is the other universe thing.

This is what an explosion really looks like when it shows up on weather radar:

Yeah but once you hit too much gas you exceed the UEL(Upper Explosive Limit), you'd also need a source of ignition, it wouldn't autoignite, especially considering how low the temperatures have been.

This is a terrible sentence. I don't know what a "Saturday night house" is, this sentence runs on, "destroyed" is somehow a weaker word than "flattened", and no one should wonder why an explosion and fire killed people or destroyed buildings. I get what is being said, but damn is this distracting.
