Doctors said he is making a quick recovery, and he's slowing starting to remember what happened.

I just keep thinking, if I would have stayed in bed and it happened the same time... Duncan said I thank my lucky stars, I guess.

Duncan and his girlfriend recovered a few items from the wreckage and said they hope to rebuild. Investigators said the blast was caused by a faulty furnace repair that led to a natural gas leak.
