Georgia home explosion leaves two in critical condition

ROSWELL, Ga. (WXIA) - Two Georgia men are in the hospital following a home explosion that occurred late Tuesday night.

Officials say they first got the call about the explosion in Roswell, north of Atlanta, around 9:00 p.m.

Investigators still do not know what caused the explosion but are investigating the possibility of a gas leak.

The explosion shook the home of one Roswell man living a quarter of a mile away.

“It felt like something large had struck the house, maybe a light tree,” said Steven Bills.

WXIA reports a friend on Facebook said the three young men living in the home that exploded just moved into the house on Saturday.

One resident, Win Reid, is in good condition. Brandon Morton and Pat Sammons, the other two residents, are in the hospital with serious burns.

Friends are also asking the public’s help finding a dog named Maverick, who has been missing since the explosion.

Atlanta Gas Light is investigating the explosion. Neighbors said repair crews recently kept everyone away from their homes because of a problem with the lines, an allegation Atlanta Gas Light has not confirmed.
