Nightmare Becomes Reality

An Oakland man suffered critical burns on Monday night when a natural-gas line exploded inside his Oakland home. The home appears to be completely demolished, mostly because the second story of the home collapsed on to the first story. The explosion was so severe, that a neighboring home's windows shattered. PG&E is on the scene investigating, but so far they've found no evidence that the explosion was caused by a leak in their equipment. [NBC Bay Area]
