On May 5, 2017, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board announced that it is sending an investigative team to examine the site of an oil and gas related explosion in Firestone, Colorado that resulted in two fatalities and one serious injury. According to the press release, “preliminary information indicates that the well was no longer in service, but an uncapped flow line came within several feet of the home and was the likely source of the explosion.” CSB investigators will examine the circumstances leading up to the explosion.
