Will be interesting to see if this is another case of breaking and entering for the theift of materials that can be sold as scrap, or someones attempt to get out of the burden of an overpriced mortage so that they too can escape the continuing downword spiral of michigans nightmare economy, or just a plain strange accident.

Agree. I think it was copper wiring that was stolen from the other home that exploded, this is probably the same. Pathetic! People should hire house sitters when they go on vacation.

No breaking and entering. Wet Burriot with extra hot sauce.

Wow! That's too bad for the owners. Although, I'll bet they are glad they were on vacation and not at home sleeping.

Someone was certainly watching over them.

Thanks Kentwood Dave and Marti from Michigan for your astute comments. Make sure your homes don't explode when you're cookin' up your next batch of meth.....you twits.

Gosh, I'm so sorry for what happened. If any of your family belong to the VFW or American Legion Posts, please contact them. They are always there for their brothers and sisters. Then, there is the obvious-American Red Cross.

I hope everything works out for you and your family.

I saw it too it shook the ground at the party i was attending, then a fireburst above the trees followed by bright pink orange glow,when i didnt hear sirens after 2 minutes i had to call 911 from my cellphone! I told them I was at 60th and baseline but we did not know if it was close or not. we were actually a couple of blocks away from that corner, I am glad nobody was home or around I figured so because there would have been a serious gas smell with an explotion that large.

Its funny cause its been over 4 years and people are coming forward with the truth. The sad thing is the poor child has no idea that his own father commited the crime. I'm sure the papers will start reading drug dealar hires crack head to blow his house up. One things for sure it was no accident and the owner of the home had another new home burned down just two years prior to this 2008 explosion. Come on what kind of idiot does it twice in a row and truly thinks hes going to get away with it. Time will tell
