The news report I saw said that there was welding going on in a nearby housing unit, and apparently hit a gas line in the building, causing the explosion.
weird-I read someone tampered with the gas line to "steal" gas?

Gas theft from bypassing meters, or reconnecting gas after it's turned off for non-payment, is often done with weak materials for the bypass pipe & connectors. Bypassing the pressure regulator is frequently done in those situations as well.
People keep getting killed by doing these things to steal gas.
