As the investigation into last week's deadly house explosion in the Town of Wilson continues, NOCO Energy Corp., which had a propane tank outside of the Chestnut Road home, is clarifying its presence on the property. 

NOCO President James Newman, in a statement, says the company did have a propane tank at the house, but he says it was disconnected prior to the explosion.  Newman says there was a second tank connected to the house, which was leveled by the blast.  That tank was neither installed nor operated by the company.
