well water burns, homeowners are hot too

and over the years bought up multiple lots and put $4.5 million into their "dream house," 
which they moved into in September 2009.
Three months later, they began having problems with their well water, 
and by the summer of 2010, they say, the water had become flammable.

Samples collected in August 2010 "showed the presence of benzene, toluene, dissolved ethane and a large amount of dissolved methane," according to the complaint in Parker County Court.
They say they learned from the Texas Railroad Commission that defendants Range Resources and Range Production Co. had started drilling for gas in August 2009 within 120 feet of their well, 
within the boundaries of the development.
