    I agree, thank God no one was hurt including all the Pilot fire fighters who are all volunteers. They put their lives on the line every time they get a call. They raise their own money to keep there station and trucks to stander.I believe people need to think about things like that before they blow up there own thing.

    This explosion was at the home of my x-husband and daughter,son-in-law, and 7yr old granddaughter. This shop was full of motorcycles, paint, gasoline,a wood heater, ect. For all you CLOWNS that like to make stupid comments about Meth and blowing up own shed...there are innocent people that bad things happen too! I am very thankful that my family is safe and take much offence to these rude comments!! I will pray that no one in your family ever has to experience such a tragedy!
