Crews are responding in Richwood

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

At approximately 2:08 am, January 15, 2019, Columbia Gas of Ohio crews were dispatched to a reported fire and fatality at 120 N. Clinton in Richwood. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and the entire Richwood community. Upon arrival and with the assistance of the Northern Union County Fire Department, our crews turned gas service off at this address.

We have conducted an initial inspection of service lines and main lines in the area and have confirmed our system is safe. We have also conducted similar tests on portions of the service line to the property, and all indications are that the system was operating normally. We will continue to work with the NUCFD to investigate the incident to determine a cause.

Our customers expect and deserve safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to their homes and businesses. Natural gas safety requires a partnership between Columbia Gas, our customers, and communities. If a customer smells an odor of natural gas, they should leave the area immediately, move to a safe location and call Columbia Gas of Ohio at 1-800-344-4077.
