Holmes Dr Blast One Year Later

Saturday, marks the one year since a quiet Southside neighborhood was rocked by a huge gas line explosion. These images are hard to forget the blast happened on Holmes Dr near Mcardle. The impact of the explosion extended at least a quarter of a mile in all directions demolishing one home and heavily damaging other nearby structures. 60-year Robert Farley who lived in the home where the blast originated died from his injuries.  Fairly's roommate, 25-year- old Ryan Conner was also injured, but is alive today. Today the homes in and around the blast site are being rebuilt.
