    BLOWN UP???

    CARROLLTON, Ga. (AP) -- An explosion and fire, apparently caused by a gas leak, demolished a residence Tuesday, killing two people, authorities said.

    An elderly woman who lived in the house, Martha Bilbo, died in the explosion. The identity of a man who died in the explosion has not been released.

    The man, an employee for Powers Heating and Cooling of Carrollton, was working in the crawl space of the home, state Insurance and Fire Commissioner John Oxendine said.

    Bil fire department received a call from the Bilbos Monday about a gas leak.

    With the assistance of a crew from Atlanta Gas Light Co., the gas was cut off Monday and the homeowners were told two floor heaters and a space heater would have to be repaired.

    The Bilbos called Powers Heating and Cooling Tuesday.

    "As of now every pipe we have found appears to be in the off position," said Oxendine in a telephone interview from the scene. "We had a tragedy and we're trying to find out exactly how the gas went off."

    The two-story structure was demolished, and the blast also damaged another home, which had debris from the explosion on its roof.

    "The other home was burned some but is structurally sound," Mansour said.

    Atlanta Gas Light spokesman Nick Gold said the crew happened to be in the area Monday when a member of the Carrollton Fire Department asked for assistance at the Bilbos' home.

    "Upon entering the home, we agreed with the fire department that the gas needed to be disconnected and checked further by the contractor," Gold said. "That's on the homeowner's side of the gas line."

    Oxendine said his office received the call about the explosion at 1:18 p.m.

    Witnesses said the explosion was heard and elt blocks away.

    This is one of those times when you hope some idiot was wandering around with a videocam and is going to send the footage to Real TV. I swear half of the incidents on that show are staged. There's no way someone would have a camera rolling for some of the stuff they show.
