But officials said it was too soon to rule out other causes, saying only they do not believe a meth lab was to blame for the explosion that killed two people, obliterated two homes and severely damaged dozens of others.

Murder-suicide eyed in 5 deaths

Police say three children, their uncle and their grandmother have been found dead inside an Ohio garage in what appears to be a murder-suicide. The victims were found inside a truck with hoses leading from the exhaust pipe in the family's Toledo garage. Inside the vehicle were the bodies of 54-year-old Sandy Ford; her 32-year-old son, Andy Ford; and her grandchildren, Paige, Logan and Madalyn Hayes. The children were 10, 6 and 5. Sandy Ford's husband called police Monday to say he found suspicious notes in the house and couldn't enter the garage.
