Fun fact, the fiery water of death is a result of fracking. well, not fracking itself, but the chemicals soaking into the ground and workers dumping the chemicals in streams and shit. But then again, I could be wrong. The fuck do I know, I'm just a cat

There is another possibility, I recently saw a program about this sort of thing on TV. It originates from a new way of putting in gas lines, which are relatively small and are usually made out of a kind of plastic so they can bend a bit.
Anyway, the lines are placed in by being inserted into the ground while inside a burrowing machine instead of just excavating the whole pathway that it needs to go on. By doing this they save a shit ton of time/money and disturb the neighbour less.
Problem is that when they do this, they're going in blind and often times the city's pipeline system maps aren't perfect because they move and because people don't mark their exact positions.
So, sometimes these drills go right through water/sewer pipelines with the gas ones and then when they go in to clear those water/sewer pipelines with once again, sharp drillin-like machines, they can completely cut the gas pipelines and then the gas enters your water and sewer lines. Worse than that is the fact that those machines are scraping all along the pipes to clean them so sparks are made inside and ignite the gas, sometimes actually blowing up inside MULTIPLE houses who all share the same pipe system.

I'm assuming this is something along the same lines, but on a smaller level.

False. There have been many studies on the issue and while the cause is not known, it has been concluded that it is not due to fracking.
