Georgia House Explosion Caused $6 Million in Damage

May 14, 2010

Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John W. Oxendine said a house explosion in Calhoun one month ago caused an estimated $6 million in insured losses.

“These are the latest figures from companies insuring property in the blast area,” Oxendine said. “The most extensive damage is in the Saddle Brook subdivision.”

On April 15 around 4 p.m. a three-story house exploded on Saddle Mountain Drive, leaving nearly 60 homes in the surrounding area with severe to minor damage.

Eight families in the Saddle Brook subdivision were left homeless.
