Police say a house explosion in North Redding early Monday morning was a suicide attempt. The explosion happened at around 2:30AM at a house on the corner of East Keswick Dam Road and Mariposa Drive. When Redding fire and police arrived, a 51-year-old woman was standing in front of the home with severe burns. She was transported to Mercy Medical Center and then transferred to U.C Davis Burn Center. Her name has not been released. Redding Fire Battalion Chief Steve Reilly says they found a natural gas line had been tampered with. Redding Police say the victim told officers that she had intentionally flooded the house with gas and then sparked the blast in a effort to kill herself. The street was covered with broken glass and one of the walls landed on the sidewalk with the mailbox sticking up through a window. A cat died in the explosion. An injured dog was taken by animal control and another dog fled. Reilly estimated the damage at well over 100-Thousand Dollars.
