This actually happened to the house that I now live in but to the former owner.
The water heater exploded through the sub floor, through the ceiling, through the roof and landing in the back yard. I hear the story from a member of the fire dept. and a neighbor. The house caught fire because along the way, it ripped out some wiring and it shorted out and caught the place on fire. The occupant's body was found under some walls that had collapsed. Anyway, we bought the house after it was totally remodelled.
Just thought I`d pass it along that this COULD happen. You need to make sure all the safety valves are properly installed.
