Early reports indicate that a vehicle struck a gas meter of the struck house and this may have led to the explosion. It may be necessary to consider how vulnerable such meters are to vehicle impacts in general. Similarly a large truck may strike a larger gas installation or other facility that could create the potential for major consequences. Inquiries are needed.
