Gas leak destroys home in St. Paul
When a homeowner in Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul, MN, hired a plumber to auger out a clogged sewer line located in her basement, they didn’t expect the explosion that would burn the house down.

The gas-fueled fire occurred on Feb. 1, when it is believed that the plumber hit the natural gas line. He was treated for burns and released, and the resident was unharmed.
