OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – The Omaha Fire Department reported that the cause of the house explosion in southern Omaha that occurred in early December is still undetermined.

The explosion took place on the morning of December 8, killing three people and injuring one.

According to the spill, there was a natural gas release in the house that ignited, but from several possible sources. An ignition source can be a stove, a pilot light on the water heater, an electric one, etc.

Additional examination is required.

The homicide squad of the Omaha Police Department has declared the deaths of Theresa Toledo, Angela Miller and Alexander Toledo unknown.

A few days before the explosion, the owner of the house, Theresa Toledo, filed an order to protect against domestic abuse against her 27-year-old grandson Alexander Toledo. She was concerned for her safety and “feared he would set my house on fire.”

“I need Alex out of my house now before he destroys my house or harms me,” she wrote on the file. “The drugs drive him crazy.”
