Gas explosion levels empty mansion under renovation
GLADWYNE, Pa. (AP) — An apparent gas explosion leveled an empty mansion in an affluent suburb of Philadelphia on Sunday, reducing the 9,000-sq. foot (836-sq. meter) home to rubble and frightening neighbors and others who felt the thunderous boom.
The explosion at the Gladwyne mansion happened just after 8 p.m., and was felt as far away as southern New Jersey.
