If you go about your daily life believing that you won’t be vaporized by the explosion of one of the thousands of decaying old gas pipes you walk around every day, you probably won’t for long. 

Your blissful ignorance will fade when you watch this dash cam video of a gas main explosion in Stafford, N.J. The explosion on Tuesday “disintegrated” a house and injured 15 people, mostly gas workers and firefighters, who had evacuated 75 homes after confirming a leak.  

The blast could be felt a mile away, NBC reported. Two injured gas workers remain in critical condition at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
