11 Homes Destroyed After Farmington Explosion, 30 People Homeless
According to the Kennebec Journal, there were a total of 11 homes that were destroyed after the explosion at the LEAP building on Monday morning. The American Red Cross is currently assisting some of the people displaced by this horrific explosion.
A family living at the mobile home park behind a building that exploded Monday morning made it out seconds before the side of its house collapsed. Scott MacLean, one of 30 people who lost homes in the blast, started his day playing video games in the living room with his younger brother, Jacob, when chaos erupted outside their mobile home. The explosion, which he described as a “sandstorm,” was followed by a large boom and flying glass.
