House exploded!

Well, not mine... But down the road.

It shook my whole house... So I went and investigated on Excelsior!

Everyone else had to walk because the street was choked with vehicles.

I slid on through to check it out.

Lookup Sarasota Florida news reports. It'll be there!

I was hoping to catch a glimpse of excelsior, but she was nowhere to be found.

Gas explosion

most likely but another chemistry experiment gone awry making crack is a distinct possibility.

Crystal meth would be more likely, as crack is nothing more than cocaine mixed with baking soda, which is hardly a dangerous substance. But, I know what you meant. Only problem with meth labs is that it's a cervery odorous substance, and requires isolation from others for that reason.

Yeah, grow ops can give problems too.
Buddy used to be in the property rental business.
His advice is make real sure your tenants ain't growing weed.
Not only do the cops kick the front door in when they raid the place so the landlord is stuck with repairing the door and will loose at least month's rent but
the grow op's high humidity will have wrecked the interior drywall and that's to fix as well.
