Danversport Explosion

  I was staring out my front door at 104 margin st. after assuring it was locked when my eldest son came home that night. I saw the blast go off. Timing is everything. Brian Sultzbach

  We lived next to the John George Park in the Danversport. When I woke up to the explosion, my first thought was that a car hit my house, and my second thought was that a plane crashed at Sandy Beach. We realized this wasn't the case when we ran outside and saw the fire across the river. Danielle
