Didn’t this just happen in Indiana? They are condemning 37 homes there and this looks bigger.
I read that the reason the city in “The Simpsons” is name Springfield is most states have a city by that name.
Investigators in the Indianapolis explosion that killed two people and decimated a neighborhood believe natural gas was involved and are focusing on appliances as they search for a cause, a city official said Tuesday.
That is probably true. But the Producer (forget his frist name) lived in West Springfield as a kid...
I live up the road about five miles from the explosion. Big natural gas smell reported this afternoon. They felt they had capped it and were actually getting ready to lift the evacuation.
The fact that the firemen and cops were able to evacuate the area about an hour prior to the explosion is where there are so few injuries. I just saw some pictures from a cop friend and the entire strip club building is gone. Just leveled.
Gonna be a nice investigation on this one.
Your are not going to believe this, I may know person that is support staff. Haven’t spoken to them in years. Need to contact someone who is tight with them to make sure they are aok....
Th NY Genovese Family has a stake in the strip clubs in the neighborhood. Maybe it was “God forbid you should have an accident!”
Two suspects have been arrested in Indianapolis—might have been intentional.
A strip club blows up with a gas leak on a holiday weekend.
Whatever in the world makes you think that it might have been intentional?
Wow. Do you know Big Nose Sam and Skyball Sciabelli?
Without pictures this thread is useless
My friend is not “of that type” of person, those guys are long gone if my memory is correct....
The explosion I referred to was a house in Indianapolis...about a week ago.
Lightning ! On such a beatifull day ! Who woulda a thunk it ?
Howie Carr will have a ball with this.
Contest was held to decide which Springfield would host premiere of Simpsons Movie. Springfield, Vermont won.
"What will we do?"
"We'll call it a gas leak!"
Safe efficient natural gas, *BOOM*
In my experience, most nat gas explosions are due to criminal activity or inept work by union pipeline contractors.
