The explosion was caused by an independent contractor hitting a natural gas main. An evacuation was implemented within a half-mile radius of the explosion. One firefighter, Cory Barr, was killed and several others were injured. Please keep in prayer Cory Barr and his family, those who were hurt, as well as those who were evacuated.
