Orange County Gas Explosion


. GOOD AFTERNOON. I’M MARY CALVI. I’M CINDY HSU IN FOR CHRIS WRAGGE. WE BEGIN WITH A GAS EXPLOSION. TWO PEOPLE LOSE THEIR HOME AFTER THE EARLY MORNING BLAST LEVELLED THEIR HOUSE TO THE GROUND. NEW AT NOON, CBS NEWS SCOTT RAPPAPORT IS LIVE IN ORANGE COUNTY WITH MORE ON WHAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THIS TO HAPPEN. SCOTT? Reporter: YEAH, GOOD AFTERNOON. A HARROWING SCENE JUST BEHIND ME IN THE WOODS. YOU CAN SEE THE YELLOW TAPE. IT IS ROPING OFF THE SCENE OF A STARTLING HOUSE EXPLOSION THAT ROCKED THIS AREA EARLY THIS MORNING. THE SINGLE FAMILY BUNG ALOW ON MIDDOW LAKE DRIVE –. I HEARD A HUGE BOOM. FELT LIKE AN EARTHQUAKE TO BE SGLONSZ WHEN FIREFIGHTERS GOT HERE THIS MORNING, THEY SAID THE HOUSE LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF A WAR ZONE AND WORSE, THERE WERE INITIAL REPORTS THAT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED HERE MIGHT STILL BE INSIDE. Reporter: BIGGEST FEAR WERE THAT THERE WERE PEOPLE TRAPPED AND NOT ALIVE. Reporter: THEY IMMEDIATELY BEGAN THE NERVE WRACKING PROCESS OF SEARCHING FOR VICTIMS. THANK GOD WE FOUND OUT THERE WAS NO ONE TRAPPED AND NO INJURIES. Reporter: TO THEIR RELIEF, THEY CONFIRMED THE TWO MEN WHO LIVED AT THE HOUSE HAD NOT BEEN THERE. ONE WAS SCHEDULED TO WORK OVERTIME. THE OTHER WAS WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND. THE CAUSE OF THE EXPLOSION WAS A PROPANE GAS TANK FROM A LEAK ON THE PROPERTY THAT FILLED THE HOUSE WITH GAS. AS FOR WHAT CAUSED THAT LEAK. NO IDEA AT THIS TIME. Reporter: THERE WERE NO INJURIES AND ALMOST ALL OF THE DAMAGE WAS CONTAINED JUST TO THIS HOUSE BUT NEIGHBORS IN THIS SMALL COTTAGE COMPLEX SAY THE WHOLE THING LEFT THEM RATTLED. IT IS SCARY. NOW I HAVE TO LIVE HERE AND I HOPE THAT DIDN’T TO ANY OTHER BUNGALOWS. THEY HAVE GAS AND ELECTRIC TURNED OFF IN THE HOME AS A PRECAUTION. THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO ENTER THE HOUSE TO START THE INVESTIGATION. Reporter: NOW, THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE HOUSE WERE NOT HERE WHEN WE ARRIVED ON SCENE. WE’RE TOLD THEY MIGHT BE RETURNING LATER TODAY.
