On April 17, 2007, Employees #1 and #2 were working in a custom home that was built over an abandoned gas well. The house had just reached the stage of installing windows and doors, closing off the ventilation. The two employees were installing insulation in the crawl space, when it exploded. Employee #1 and #2 were hospitalized. The ignition source could have been the portable light being used or a static spark from the insulation.
