Video Captures Terrifying Moment House Explodes in Pennsylvania, Killing 5 People

A horrifying video captured the moment a house completely explodes in western Pennsylvania, killing five people.

Among those killed by the blast included a 38-year-old man and his 12-year-old son.

Doorbell camera footage captured the house on Rustic Ridge Drive in Plum Borough exploding.

The cause of the explosion is not yet known, but it is under investigation by Allegheny County officials.

As The New York Post reported:

Plum Police Chief Lanny Conley said the Allegheny County medical examiner has determined that four adults and one child died from the explosion in the Rustic Ridge Estates neighborhood.

Two of the five dead victims have been identified as Casey Clontz and his son, Keegan, the Trib reported.

Meanwhile, fifty-seven firefighters were treated at the scene for minor issues, including heat-related injuries, WTAE reported, citing Steve Imbarlina, assistant chief of Allegheny County Emergency Services.

At least two other homes were also destroyed, and about a dozen others were damaged in the blast in the Pittsburgh-area suburb about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, officials said.

Casey and Keegan, who lived on nearby Brookside Drive, were at the house at 141 Rustic Ridge Drive when it exploded, the family told the Trib.

It was unclear what they were doing there, though the family said Casey was very friendly with the neighbors.

Casey, who worked for Peoples Gas, was an avid Steelers fan and “a football and gymnastics dad,” while Keegan, a member of the Plum Mustangs youth football team, was about to begin junior high, the outlet said.

“Keegan and Casey were their most happy when they were spending time at the lake with their lake family and friends. They swam, did boating, and loved cruising around in their golf cart,” the family said.

“Keegan and Casey will be missed by so many and will continue to be loved by so many, including their family, friends, and community,” the statement added.

“There will be lots of forensic testing to be able to tell anything one way or another. This investigation may last for months, if not years,” he said.

The president of Peoples Gas said crews arrived within 15 minutes of the blast.

“We immediately began checks in the area for leakages, including smell checks and testing for gas underground and in the air,” Mike Huwar told WTAE.

“We also verified consistent pressure a tour regulation stations. At this point, we can share that our system was operating as designed,” he added.

Neighborhood residents are seeking answers about the deadly explosion.

“This isn’t the first time that this has happened in Plum,” neighbor Justin Newman told the outlet.

“We need to know why this is happening. It’s sad that people lost their lives, and we don’t have answers. We need answers for these families. We need answers for this community.”
