Leaking propane gas blamed in fatal Franklin explosion

Fires and Explosions

State authorities in Franklin, Massachusetts recently concluded that the explosion that killed two persons in October last year was caused by a propane gas leak, an article of Boston Herald reported on September 8.

According to reports, couple Richard and Nancy Brown were killed after an explosion at their condominium. Investigating authorities did not find anything that would link the explosion to a criminal activity. Richard and Nancy, both 66 years old, reportedly relocated from Florida to be closer to their grandchildren. Fire officials revealed that the explosion took place after the leaking gas from the family’s heating system was ignited by an undetermined source.
