To list the pieces of evidence we have:
-Inconceivably large and instant explosion with blast overpressure reaching into levels of bomb ordinance.
-No known gas leaks.
-Sonic boom from detonation heard in excess of 4 miles away.
-Up to 80 homes affected by the explosion.
-Possible furnace issues in questioned home (newest reports suggest the issue was fixed weeks ago).
-ATS members in the area listening to the fire dept. radio heard mentioning of "secondary devices".
-Home that may have been the explosion source was unoccupied.
-Unknown whether the blast originated inside, below, or outside the main two homes in question.
-Streaming colors after detonation and during fire (presuming exotic metals burning at high temperatures?)
-The two homes in question had brick front walls (possibly the cause for the blown in doors and garage doors on the homes across the street, due to
high velocity bricks).
-Raining ash miles away (most likely burned wood due to the fire).
-Odd smells reported by those on scene (Some reports suggesting smells reported before explosion)
