The deadly blast took place Monday, killing 31-year-old Southern California Gas Co. technician Wade Kilpatrick, who had been sent to the home in the 23500 block of Wooden Horse Trail to check out a reported gas leak, authorities said.

Contractors had been working at the home prior to the explosion, though the specific cause remained under investigation.
