I just saw your post, my company was there however it was the opposite shift. They did a great job. While it is still under investigation it looks like the power went out and something might have went wrong with the the water heaters pilot light. When the power went back on the house exploded. I will let you know when the FM comes out with his report. This is just speculation.
