VIDEO: A gas leak, explosion and huge fire at a Phoenix home left one person dead and one critically injured. It happened Thursday just before 10 a.m. near 11th Avenue and Fillmore Street. The home was leveled, and the flames spread to a house next door. "When our crews got here, they found a home that was nearly completely destroyed. A very large burning active fire," said Phoenix fire Capt. Jake Van Hook. "They didn't know it at the time but it was being driven by gas that had broken or had some involvement in the explosion and the fire." Neighbors say they felt the explosion.
