"We're just so lucky that this wasn't 12 hours different," said Eden Mayor Neville Hall." [If it happened] at noon, during the day, we'd have had a much worse situation. The main thing is no one was injured."

The blast damaged several surrounding businesses, including AIA Sweepstakes, Tee To Green Golf Shop and King’s Inn Pizza Parlor. The damage for most of those businesses included busted and broken windows.  

The explosion also rocked homes blocks away from the restaurant.
