Imagine turning on your bathroom light and having the house blow up! That’s what happened to a 47-year-old Pt. Pleasant Beach man who was badly burned when his house erupted in flames from a natural gas explosion.

Considering that another gas explosion happened nearby in Stafford Township less than a week ago, the circumstances seem a bit suspicious. Do you think the two cases are related or just a strange coincidence? Is there a public safety issue that the community should be concerned about?
