"It was definitely natural gas," said Michigan State Police Specialist Sgt. Lenny Jaskulka in the article. He continued that until excavators could clear the rubble the ignition point would not be known.

The wash structure, notes the story, consisted of masonry blocks, I-beams and a wooden frame, with Jaskulka explaining that gas was used at On The Spot for tube heaters and blowers.
