COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Investigators have pinpointed the cause of an explosion that destroyed a central Ohio home.
The Columbus Dispatch reports a defective installation of a gas shut-off valve for a stove was at fault for Tuesday’s explosion in Columbus. Fire investigators say the incident was accidental.
Investigators say the leak occurred after 69-year-old Jack Morris disconnected the stove and changed the gas shut-off valve.
Morris and his 3-year-old great-granddaughter were treated at hospitals for burns and are expected to recover.
