With all of the safeties in place it's hard to imagine this. Maybe DIY or a setup because the house didn't sell.

I agree. Don't see a furnace gas explosion causing that amount of a blast. A lot of those suburb homes in Indy are the jagoe concrete slab homes maybe a huge gas leak and build up under the slab could but still hard to believe. I think bomb makers or meth heads.

safeties can be jumped around, a little knowledge can be dangerous.read,learn,grow.....repeat.

Safeties don't do any good if a piping joint outside the furnace starts leaking.

they can surely blow up a house if you dont know what your doing to them.
in my neck of the woods, a HO bought a gas valve from fergusons, installed it, and blew up the house, then sewed fergusons for selling him the valve. also a HO who installed a gas drier blew his house up the beginning of this year i believe.
sucks that it happened. do you really think they will be able to figure out what caused it?

I grew up in a predominantly Italian suburb of Chicago. My next door neighbor , grew grapes in the backyard to use in his homemade wine. He also made dry sausage in his basement. He was also sent away to the federal pennitentiary. A house blew up about 3 blocks away from us. I remember finding debris in my front yard. No fire though. The house was completely leveled. The homeowner had sent his family back to Italy and he had mysteriously disappeared. Just sayin'Local 597 Service Fitter

Looking at the pictures I don't see how they will ever know.

A house blew up a town over from mine. The HO was saying gas leak. They looked into it and saw that thier was saw marks on the gas piping and no pictures where found etc. The insurance company doesn't wanna pay for this. They have ways of knowing what happend.
