Explosion Rocks Downtown!
(Arkham Gazette, Wednesday, November 3rd, 1999)
A late night explosion causes serious damage to local downtown buildings.
According to police spokesman Merryman Hayfeather, a gas line ruptured and exploded last night near
address here around midnight, as a result of a freak lightning storm. Initial reports indicate no one was injured, but the businesses of Arkham Paranormal Investigations and Michael Lewis Accounting both suffered shattered windows and possible structural damage. Additionally, several streetlights were destroyed by the blast. There is no estimate on repair dates for those lights.
Hayfeather reassured the public that this was a freak accident and not an example of domestic terrorism.
