    • No, but I know that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the victims. Maybe Henrietta can tell us more.

      Since the cause of the fire has not been officially determined, I assume that litigation will be delayed. If a gas leak is ultimately identified as the cause, then I expect the main target to be CenterPoint.

  5. The recent gas explosion in Harlem seems to confirm the GoV analysis that the Cedar Riverside explosion was not due to gas. There was also a recent gas explosion in a townhome or condo complex in MD (I think.) In each case the buildings are demolished and blown outwards with a debris field far from the site. Very unlike the result in CR. Also, in Harlem authorities are immediately checking soil for gas residues – something none of the stories about Cedar Riverside mention and which probably have been complicated by immediately bulldozing/contaminating the site.
