Ewing Twp Mercer Co. NJ Gas Explosion 900' from Major Gas Transmission Line

The gas explosion in Ewing Twp, Mercer County NJ was less that 1/4 mile from a major gas transmission line, the Williams-Transco.

The house on the end is where the explosion started. The fire spread to and destroyed the adjacent home. All that is left now is a debris field and a crater.
