BUSHLAND, TEXAS - Five days before flames flew 700 feet into the air, warning signs were there.
"It was a pretty substantial smell," neighbor Jason Wagner said.
Along with a group of friends, Wagner smelled gas in the area while taking a hay right on Halloween.
"How amazing just a few days latter that's what had happened," he said.
No one called in the smell to authorities because they say they thought a little gas odor was normal living over the pipe lines.
"We kinda talked about it, and I'd mention something like that's one of the reasons I wouldn't want to live in that area," Wagner said.
