Explosion Inquiry Clears Gas Technician


According to Walla news, the investigators no longer believe that a leaking Junkers-type gas water heater is to blame for the accident. Rather, they now believe that a regular gas faucet in Linda Schwartz's apartment was left open for several hours before the blast.

The gas faucet, which is supposed to supply gas to a kitchen gas range by means of a flexible pipe, was propbably left open by mistake.
