WATCH: Moment Eden KFC Explodes from Gas Leak Caught on Surveillance Camera

EDEN – Kentucky Fried Chicken famously has a secret recipe made up of 11 herbs and spices. We don’t think any of them are supposed to be explosive, but a few nights ago an apparent gas leak at a KFC location in Rockingham County resulted in an explosion that leveled the building and shook homes miles away.

Luckily, all the staff had left for the night and no one was injured. Capturing the event, though, was a surveillance camera across the street. Watch it below.
