Team of investigators probe fault in home explosion
Two days after a $2.4 million Scarsdale home exploded, a team of investigators are trying to figure out who is to blame.
The Fayette Road home was under construction and near completion when it was reduced to rubble Thursday. Firefighters say the house blew up after a worker, who was installing a storm drain, mistakenly dislodged a gas line into the home with a backhoe. A private team of investigators hired by the insurance company were on the scene trying to figure out the exact cause of the explosion and who is responsible. Investigators want to figure out if utility lines were marked correctly on the property.The home?s owner and builder Joseph Daniel says he will most likely rebuild.
