Posted on March 10th, 2011 No Comments

Occupants of a Colorado Springs home are currently still being searched for by emergency crews after the home exploded and erupted in a tower of flames.

According to officials, the accident occurred around noon on Knotwood Drive when the home exploded and sent flames almost 50 feet into the air. The residents of the home include a 74-year-old woman and her 51-year-old son.

Neither of them were accounted for and their cars were in the driveway. Investigators are now sifting through debris to find the victims and investigating to determine what caused the explosion. Due to the immense heat, police think that it was a chemical or gas leak that caused the explosion.

The deadly house fire which claimed three lives earlier this month has been officially ruled as arson.  The three men were living rent-free at the Lebanon house were killed when a fire erupted suddenly on the evening of October 19.  The fire was so intense that firefighters were unable to enter the building and search for survivors until they got the fire under control.  Upon entering the house, they found two bodies by the front door and another in a different area of the house.
