Question: I forgot something inside the house. Can I go back in the house after I smell gas?

Answer: No, you cannot go back into the house. Keep some distance between you and your house; at the very least, go across the street. You do not want to be close to the house if there is a gas explosion. Call the gas company and have them turn off the gas. Stay out of the house until the house has been inspected and confirmed that the house is safe to enter.
