Federal agency says 20-year old pipeline damage led to deadly blast in Dallas

 

A federal agency says a 2018 natural gas explosion that leveled a northwest Dallas House and killed a 12-year old girl was the result of a damaged pipeline nearly 20 years earlier.

The National Transportation Safety Board also put some of the blame on Atmos Energy and its procedures and decisions in providing natural gas to the neighborhood.

KERA news reported the agency declared the probable cause was a natural gas leak from a pipe damaged nearly two decades earlier than the blast.
