A Kosciusko County man watched his home explode just seconds after stepping outside to turn off the gas. It happened in the small town of Etna Green just outside Warsaw around 10 a.m. Wednesday morning. Firefighters say they could see the smoke three miles away and residents say they heard the explosion even farther away than that. "Literally one minute its all there and five minutes later everything you own is gone. Just think about what that does to your life," said Mentone Fire Chief Mike Yazel Thursday.
