    Another one found while looking for yours tool. Pay your bill, call the plumber, & don't F with the gas.

    J.C.

    Los Angeles – A catastrophic gas explosion blew the roof off a South Los Angeles building early Friday, leaving one worker clinging to life and a second man dead by electrocution outside, fire officials said.

    Investigators found evidence that someone illegally tapped the welding and paint company's gas line with copper piping that bypassed a disconnected meter and pressure regulators, filling the structure with combustible gas.

    "The gas had been shut off Thursday due to non-payment. Someone then jury-rigged it. This could very well turn into a criminal investigation," Capt. Steve Ruda of the Los Angeles Fire Department told the Daily News.

    Officials initially reported that the first victim, thought to be the company owner, died from his blast injuries. Ruda later said the man was in critical condition with severe burns at a nearby hospital.

    He was “blown from the inside to the outside” of the fiery wreckage, Ruda said.

    Responders found the second victim under a nearby vehicle and transported him to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    “He was electrocuted trying to move his truck. A 34,500-volt power line fell on the truck, and he didn’t know the vehicle was energized,” Ruda said.

    Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, and search dogs combed the smoldering rubble for other victims without finding any, Ruda said.

        Very sorry to hear. Googling news doesn't show much yet. Information coming slow.

        Thinking of you all out West.

                  NBC news is now reporting PG&E internal document shows company and Govt. regulators knew that the pipeline was in danger of failing but they had no plans of replacing it for another 3 years, though their own experts determined it represented an unacceptable high risk of failure. NICE, PG&E ! FOUND YOUR PHONE CALL RECORDS YET? The neighbors are checking theirs! At least the ones alive are!
