Meeting set for Tuesday in Plymouth about natural gas tank explosion

April 7, 2014 

Williams Partners plans a meeting for Plymouth residents Tuesday at the town’s fire station to discuss last week’s fire and explosion at the natural gas facility.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and residents are encouraged to ask questions about the incident. Both Williams employees and emergency responders will be at the meeting.

The fire station is at Third Street and Nunn Street.

An explosion at the plant March 31, injured five people and forced the evacuation of 1,000 when shrapnel from the blast punctured a large liquefied natural gas tank.

Residents were allowed to return to their homes the following day. The injured were treated and later released.
