They called the gas company 2 hours prior to the explosion coplaining of a natural gas leak. When smelling natural gas, why didn't these people shut down the bar and require everyone to leave the bar? I know in my house, if I smell natural gas and cannot shut it off immediately, I'll call 911 and just leave. Is that not common sense? There will certainly be a law suit concerning this.

I am really sick of written news articles that automatically load a 'fuck me I'm illiterate' video without me even asking for it.
