A utility gas crew told firefighters they had a gas leak under control just minutes before a home exploded in Somerset, Mass., on Feb. 20, 2009, killing a 62-year-old woman and her dog, according to an account in the Boston Globe. Rose Marie Rebello, 62, and her dog were both found dead after the evening blast. Two hundred neighbors were forced to evacuate, and a firefighter and a utility worker suffered injuries. Neighbors had reported a strong odor of gas in the area before the explosion.
