A catastrophic house explosion in Santa Maria, California, left four people injured and prompted evacuation of the area. When first responders arrived at the scene on 1219 Jackie Lane, the house was demolished and engulfed in flames. Four people were transported to local hospitals with injuries sustained in the blast. Rescue teams pulled one woman from the house that exploded and the other three from neighboring houses. Fire officials say the blast was caused by a natural gas leak that originated in the kitchen. Investigators from SoCalGas have been on the scene. Police instructed people to avoid the Hancock Village neighborhood near East Este Drive (east of Highway 101 near Marion Regional Medical Center) during the investigation.
