Explosions in North Carolina
The loss of a loved one due to a fatal explosion can be incredibly difficult to accept. Unfortunately, we see countless people lose their lives as a result of explosions that occur in the United States every year. Here in North Carolina, innocent people continue to lose their lives as a result of home explosions.
There are several reasons why we continue to see home explosions take place across our state. One of the leading factors in these explosions is faulty HVAC systems. When there is a gas build-up inside a heater or air conditioning unit, it can cause a massive explosion to occur. In other instances, we see explosions take place as a result of defective hot water heaters, ovens, and other appliances.
