Nearly 100 Homes in Massachusetts Burn in Gas Explosions

Granite Law Group

1 Man Killed, Multiple People Injured as Clusters of Massachusetts Homes Catch Fire

According to recent reports, between 60 and 100 houses in the Merrimack Valley in Massachusetts have experienced gas-related explosions and have caught fire as a result. The majority of these homes are in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover, and the houses that have been damaged by gas explosions are serviced by Columbia Gas of Massachusetts.

18-year-old Leonel Rondon was in his car when a gas explosion occurred in a nearby house. The explosion caused the chimney to collapse and fall on Rondon’s car while he was inside. Rondon was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital where he was treated for severe injuries and later pronounced dead. This is currently the only recorded death resulting from the Merrimack Valley fires.

Damages Associated With the Home Gas Explosions in Merrimack Valley

The series of gas explosions have led to houses, residential complexes, and entire neighborhoods catching fire at once, overwhelming local first responders and devastating multiple homes and families. More than 20 people have been transported to local hospitals and treated for injuries ranging from minor complications due to smoke inhalation to major physical damage from blast trauma. Others who heeded evacuation orders or managed to escape burning homes without injury have still experienced great financial loss and loss of property.

Authorities have indicated that an issue with gas service from Columbia Gas of Massachusetts contributed to the explosions and subsequent fires. Service has currently been shut off in the area in order to prevent further fires and allow the company time to depressurize gas lines.
