CAMPTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials received calls complaining about the smell of gas before an explosion that killed two people at a home near the rural community of Campton on Saturday.

Wolf County Emergency Management Director Marcus Stephens told WLEX-TV that someone at the home called twice about a gas smell coming from the basement.

Stephens said gas company employees responded to the home, but it is unclear what they determined.
