Neighbors Say Explosion Rattled The Entire Neighborhood
Only one thing was on Kelley Scott's mind when she found out a gas explosion blew up her neighbor's house.
"Our dog is in the house. We have to get home to Bo," said Scott.
But when she and her six-year-old daughter, Lauren, got home, Bo was gone.
"I was so sad because I thought we would never find him," said Lauren.
Scott said the explosion rattled the entire neighborhood. Debris from the house that exploded flew across the street hitting Scott's home.
“All of our windows were blown out, glass everywhere, glass
all over the beds.”
The explosion blew the garage door off the house into David Lane's grandmother's yard.
"It went across the street. Pieces of wrapped around the mailbox," said Lane.
Houses like Fredi Aguilar's were moved off the foundation.
“You can actually see the spacing in the carpet between the
carpet and the wall. You can actually see the concrete under there.”
Scott says looking at the damage it is hard to believe nobody was hurt.
"It could have been so much worse. I don't even want to think about that."
A fireman found Bo and brought him home.
"I was so excited we found him," said Lauren.
