Fort Lupton's flammable tap water goes national

In recent days, Channel 4 has been covering a story made for YouTube: Some residents of Fort Lupton have discovered that they can set their water on fire. Okay, that's not quite right: The flammable stuff is natural gas that's seeped into their pipes, not the water itself. Still, when these homeowners hold a flame next to an open tap, well, FLASH! No wonder stations across the country lit up when they heard about the story. Click above to see how the subject was covered by an outlet in Boston. It's hot stuff.
