    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Investigators say the cause of a deadly July house explosion in central Minnesota is undetermined. Earlier this month, Princeton Fire and Rescue and the Princeton Police Department closed their investigation into the July 22 explosion, which left Eugene Meyer dead. The 85-year-old’s son and grandson suffered severe burns in the blast but survived. The investigation could not determine an exact cause of the explosion. An earlier investigation with the Minnesota State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Minnesota Office of Pipeline Safety found that a natural gas valve that supplied a clothes drier in the home was found in the “open” position. However, it was undetermined if the valve was open prior to the explosion. Investigators say the ignition source of the blast was in the kitchen area of a gas range on the home’s main floor. Yet, it was never determined what exactly sparked the blast.   More On WCCO.com: Large Groups Rob Burnsville, Maplewood Best Buys On Black Friday Infant Found Dead, Mother Arrested During St. Cloud Welfare Check,...

(CBS4)- A fatal home explosion in Gypsum, caused by a natural gas line that was ruptured during a drilling operation for a fiber optics project, was not the first time the Comcast contractor hit a line. While investigators initially believed a line was struck days before the Sept. 17 explosion, Black Hills Energy said this turned out to be incorrect. (credit: CBS viewer) CBS4 confirmed a line was struck during the same fiber optics operation during the summer. A family in the adjacent neighborhood said they were evacuated from their home in July, when the contracting company, SNEFCO, hit a gas line. “The fire department arrived, and the guy came to the door and said you need to leave, you need to evacuate and do it now,” said Eric Johnson.

    President Trump referred to the Beirut explosion that killed dozens as “an attack” and said generals he consulted with seem to believe “it was a bomb of some kind.” The president made the surprising comments during his scheduled Tuesday White House press conference. Officials in Lebanon have not called the blast an attack but have said that the port where it occurred may have housed some 2,700 tons of seized ammonium nitrate. At the start of the news conference, Trump first referred to the explosion as an attack while offering his condolences and U.S. assistance to the Lebanese people while they recover from the blast, which left thousands injured and at least 73 dead, a number that is expected to rise. A reporter at the briefing later asked the president to elaborate on what he meant by “attack.” Civilians carry a person at the explosion scene that hit the seaport, in Beirut Lebanon, Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2020.
