LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — An oil and gas company has demolished a northern Colorado house that was damaged last year in a deadly explosion blamed on a leaking gas pipeline.
The Daily Times-Call reports Anadarko Petroleum had purchased the property that neighbored the site of the April 2017 explosion that killed two people, injured a third and destroyed a house in the town of Firestone, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Denver.
Anadarko spokeswoman Jennifer Brice says the house was bought as part of a settlement agreement following the blast.
The company says it is working with city officials and others to determine the best use of the property.
