Lincoln house explosion claims neighboring home
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The natural gas explosion that tore apart a Lincoln house has claimed a neighboring home.
The Aug. 14 explosion leveled the home of Jim and Jeanne Jasa. Jeanne Jasa died as a result of the blast, and he was injured. Investigators have said the home had filled with natural gas and the ignition source was inside.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that contractors last week applied for a city demolition permit to raze the home directly south of the Jasa property. The home sustained heavy damage to its walls, windows and rafters.
