DENVER (AP) - Investigators recovered a body of a man in his 20's from the rubble of a suburban Denver house that was leveled by an explosion.

Officials did not immediately say if the body was that of the man reported missing after the blast in Thorton on Thursday.

A city spokeswoman said investigators are looking into whether natural gas was the cause.

No names had been released.

A neighbor KCNC-TV that the blast knocked him and his son off their feet at their home across the street.

Debris clung to surrounding trees and rooftops and was scattered across two square blocks in the neighborhood.
