Just after 3 AM on Thursday December 10, 1998, the former Boardwalk Restaurant on Logan Blvd in Lakemont exploded. The building had been vacant for a while, and was in the process of being sold. The natural gas that had been off was turned on during the day on Tuesday, Dec 8. However, an uncapped line inside the building allowed natural gas to pour in for 35 hours. The explosion was heard as far away as Tyrone, PA .
