伯明翰煤氣爆炸。泄漏的天然氣管道被確認

消防部門表示,摧毀一棟發現一名79歲婦女屍體的房屋的煤氣爆炸,很可能是一場意外。

西米德蘭茲消防局說,似乎是 "無意中點燃了管道系統中的一個接頭處的大量氣體泄漏"。

在周三的現場,消防調查員在進行了拆除工作,使碎片可以安全進入後,能夠對部分燃氣管道進行測試。

健康與安全局表示,它將繼續調查是否有任何與工作有關的活動導致了這一事件。

燃氣分銷商Cadent說,該地區的主幹道和服務管道是健全的,不是原因。

消防部門再次對當地社區表示感謝,它說當地社區 "在這場悲劇發生後表現得非常好,為受影響的人提供支持和庇護"。

A gas explosion that destroyed a house where the body of a 79-year-old woman was found was most likely an accident, the fire service has said.

West Midlands Fire Service said it appeared there had been an "inadvertent ignition of a large escape of gas from a joint in the pipework."

At the scene on Wednesday, fire investigators were able to carry out tests on sections of gas piping after demolition work was carried out to make debris safe to enter.

The Health and Safety Executive said it would continue to make inquiries as to whether any work-related activities contributed towards the incident.

Gas distributor Cadent said mains and service pipes in the area were sound and not the cause.

The fire service again thanked the local community, which it said had been "fantastic in the aftermath of this tragedy, offering support and shelter to those affected".
