Lower Township Manager Michael Voll tells WPVI-TV that he was in the area when the house blew up at about 4 p.m. Thursday.

He says it sounded louder than thunder.

The blast leveled the house and sent debris flying onto neighboring properties and into the street. Voll says 30-40 neighbors deserve “kudos” for teaming up to pull the couple out of the debris. The victims were taken to Crozer-Chester Medical Center in critical condition.

The township manager says new gas lines were just installed in the neighborhood.
