    Propane would make a fine cooking method, and mix that with a bunch of other stuff, like acetone vapors, and BOOM!
    I am just guessing here, but since acetone is a paint thinner is is easy to get. All that had to do was go to the friendly ACE Hardware.

    Pretty sure that even if they had homeowner's insurance that it will not cover illegal activity.

    No crime tape was up so...
    Oops not so fast. Now that the power is out off, The fire department is back and taping everything off. The occupant is in the burn unit in Mobile AL.
    It's under investigation so... No more bad press from this one. Nothing to see here. Move along now.

    It could have been something as stupid as one of those old aluminum flex supply lines cracking and a spark lighting up the works.

    Last Feb the lady up the street committed suicide by gas. Once the house filled with gas, KA-BOOM! Broke windows up and down the block. Nothing left but a big hole. At least she set the dog loose before she did it.
