Doorbell Cam Video Captures the Moment a St. Louis Home Exploded
Thanks to doorbell cameras, we now see moments captured we wouldn't see otherwise. That was the case for a security camera in St. Louis yesterday that witnessed the moment a St. Louis home exploded and damaged multiple homes.
Fox 2 St. Louis shared this incredible video from O'Fallon which showed a home completely get blown to smithereens.
According to their story, there's no determination yet as to what caused the explosion other than there was a gas line break. The question is what other factors either caused that break or interacted with the break to create such a huge concussive event.
Miraculously, no one was injured. Fox 2 St. Louis had an interview with the daughter of the homeowners showing what is left of the home now.
Neighbors say the home is a complete loss. Determining the cause won't bring back the family's home, but could help prevent something like this happening in the future.
Safewise has some tips on what to look for if you suspect a gas leak in your home. An unknown hissing sound or house plants that suddenly die should immediately sound an alarm that you need to get out of the house and get professional help.
