  1. I’d like to know who installed the propane piping her—and in the homes that similarly exploded in SVR!

  2. May not be the installers or even the manufacturer’s fault. Snow build up at the tank can damage the regulator. This is why it is recommend to clear snow away from the tank and regulator.

  3. Does the owner/owners work in Jackson? or out of town. why was no one home that early in the morning?
