Cause Of House Explosion Under Investigation

June 4, 2012, 1:21 PM by Peggy Moyer

Cause Of House Explosion Under Investigation
MITCHELL, SD -

Fire investigators are searching for clues as to what caused a natural gas explosion at a house in Mitchell. It happened at 800 W. 2nd Street just after 6 p.m.

The Mitchell Director of Public Safety says the home has major damage.  There is a crack in the foundation, windows are blown out and the front porch and an addition on the back of the house are partially blown off.

Two people living in the house were not home when the explosion happened. Firefighters evacuated the neighborhood, including a mother and children next door.  Fire crews told her to get out and go at least a block down the street to safety.

This is the third house explosion in Mitchell over the past five years.

We'll talk with officials with Northwestern Energy about Sunday night's blast tonight on KELOLAND News.
