New details released about Fairport Harbor explosion

Posted: Updated:

Nearly nine months after a massive gas explosion rocked the small town of Fairport Harbor the Dominion Gas Company today told federal authorities that the explosion was caused by one of its regulators that malfunctioned.

The regulator allowed too much gas to build up in the line which later lead to the explosion.

Up to 20 homes were damaged. Some beyond repair. Since the blast Dominion said it has taken full responsibility but some residents disagree saying the gas company needs to do more to compensate the families who were and still are displaced.

A class action lawsuit is now pending against the company.
