turned their dream home into an on going nightmare.Max and Casey Murphy showed FOX23 News videos of the gas seeping up from their yard that is not only causing bubbles on their driveway and sidewalk but is also flammable."They say they've never heard of it. It's very rare, and that it never happens. But it is happening, it's very real," Max said. "It hurts to know that we aren't getting any answers or any source of the problem. We know what it's not, but we don't know what it is. How can we go on living like this?"The couple bought their house last year, but said around Thanksgiving is Converse Chuck Taylor 2 Low Black when things began to get worse. The house was evacuated by Oklahoma Natural Gas on suspicions that one of their lines was causing a gas leak in the area. After putting the family up in a hotel, they determined that their lines and the City of Owasso's utilities were operating normally.The family returned to the house, with the gas still seeping up, but ONG had shut off service for safety precautions, leaving the family without heat during the winter. The home has also received damage from the gas because the pressure developed will not allow rain water to absorb into the ground. Instead it sits at top the ground, and has damaged the house's exterior."When it rains you can hear the ground perking, and it bubbles," Max said. "Our sidewalk bubbles, and our driveway bubbles. For the first year, we were afraid to put a flame to it, but then a geological scientist asked us if we put a flame to it, and that's when I went outside and checked."It was after that, Max lit a match, and a five foot flame quickly burst in his driveway.The Murphys have experienced more than just the ability not to use gas appliances. Their three children, who were all born healthy, are now experiencing health problems, especially in the area breathing."You can't smell it. You can't taste it. We can't afford the detectors to put in every single room. It's just scary," Casey told FOX23 News.Max Murphy tells FOX23 News that it was not disclosed to him and his wife Casey during the sale of the their home that anything was wrong with the house. The couple later found out after purchasing the house that the home's first owner abandoned living at the house after living there for a year for an unknown reason. The Murphys tell FOX23 they believe that unknown reason is what they are dealing with now."They cannot tell us it is safe. They cannot use the word safe. They cannot tell us it is OK to live here and raise your children. I'm scared for the kids to go outside in the backyard and play," Casey said.After showing that the gas is flammable, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, with permission from the City of Owasso, will dig up the Murphy's front yard and try to find a source for the gas seeping up from the ground.Casey tells FOX23 News many people have tried to write it off as naturally occurring, but she says her and her husband believe it is an uncapped well. There are capped wells nearby her home underneath her neighbor's homes nearby.Until a source can be found, the family has no way of recuperating their expenses for excavations, medical bills, inspections, hotel stays, eating out because of no ability to cook, and the damage to Cheap Converse All Star Ox White

their home."They could've built the house on a manure pit. It could be a sinkhole. They've said All Black Converse Womens 8
everything, but what it is," Casey said. "There's no paperwork or anything to go to a lawyer and say help us, because we have no proof of anything."Attorneys have told the couple that if they can find out the source of the gas seeping up, there may be legal grounds to stand on and someone to go after later.
