Quote: "...residents complained about a plugged probe site leaking gas in front of homes on Sauce Piquante Lane. Boudreaux said he tested the hole and found leaking gas at a concentration that was approaching an explosive level."

Note: Near-explosive levels of gas (presumably methane) leaking out near homes? Might be time to GTFO if anyone's still there. It's probably less painful - and more survivable - to leave in a car than to be launched out of the area by an explosion.
