You have to squeeze behind a dirty water heater to see the disconnected furnace and water heater flue pipe. Lets hope that a third cup of morning coffee is enough to clear the homeowner's head of CO poisoning.

This jumbled mess is the caved-in foundation wall under the rear part of a house. We were told a structural engineer had been out several days earlier and said the foundation was OK.

This is a photo of a gas leak at an old shut off valve. It is not big enough to cause the house to explode but it is allowing toxic gas to leak into the house.
