    If you operate an electrical switch this could create a spark and cause an explosion.

    This is absolutely outrageous and it shows nothing but complete negligence! My heart goes out to the poor family of the young one that lost its life at something so avoidable. I can remember the similar incident that happened last year too where the house was blown 350ft in every direction !!!!
