Statement regarding Edge of Village incident

Sunday, June 18, 2017

Our crews are assisting in the investigation of a reported explosion in the 5000 block of Edge of Village in Columbus. Our thoughts are with those who were injured.

At this time, no determination has been made as to whether natural gas was involved. We have performed a thorough investigation of our lines from the street to the meter and confirmed our facilities are operating safely and normally. As a precaution, we are also inspecting all of our lines in the neighborhood. Our customers expect and deserve safe and reliable natural gas service.

Natural gas safety is a partnership between Columbia Gas of Ohio, our customers and communities. Here are some important safety reminders:

  • If someone smells an odor of natural gas or thinks there may be a gas leak, they should leave the area immediately, move to a safe location and call Columbia Gas of Ohio at 800-344-4077, as well as 911.
  • Don’t attempt to work on your home’s natural gas lines or appliances. Contact a professional. 
  • Always call 811 at least two business days before doing any digging. Utilities will mark their lines so you can dig safely. Calling 811 is easy, the service is free and it’s the law.
