NW 23rd x Glisan Natural Gas Explosion Lawyer

Portland Natural Gas Explosion Lawyer investigates explosion at NW 23rd x Glisan

On the morning of October 19, 2016, a natural gas explosion took place on the corner of NW 23rd and Glisan in Portland.   The blast destroyed the building that formerly housed Portland Bagelworks, near Dosha Salon.  Blast victims and business owners from the surrounding area are contacting our Natural Gas Explosion Lawyer regarding blast injuries and business losses caused by the natural gas explosion.

Based upon present news reports, a third party contractor hit a natural gas pipe at approximately 8:55 a.m.  Crews from NW Natural Gas and Portland Fire & Rescue responded to the report of the natural gas leak and evacuated the building, but apparently did not notify surrounding buildings.  At approximately 9:39 am, a significant explosion occurred at the site.  Despite evacuating the building where the leak occurred, the massive blast caused injuries to people, and business losses in the surrounding area.  There is also damage to three of the surrounding buildings from the massive force of the explosion.

“It’s a scene like none other that I’ve ever seen,” said Portland Mayor Charlie Hales.
