Downtown Springfield Rocked by Gas Explosion

Late Friday afternoon downtown Springfield was rocked by a massive gas explosion. At the time of this posting, several people are reported wounded, including firefighters, at least one police officer, and two gas company employees who had responded to an earlier-reported gas leak at the Scores strip bar on Worthington Street. According to WWLP tonight, Scores was completely destroyed in the blast.

  3. Is there some reason none of the media, including your ‘alternative news’ site reporting this story of national interest have not even touched upon the obvious ownership of this club and other businesses nearby? It took me a few minutes, but after some research using google and just the buildings’ address I was able to deduce something far more sinister than a random explosion. Is the fear of the ownership of the address, and links to creepy S-n-a-i-l-o family so strong no one dare even mention them? Even after a massive headline grabbing explosion that destroyed property and threatened numerous lives & livelihoods? WTF?

  4. Hmmmm,

    I’m not sure where you’re from, but in these parts (Springfield), we are all well aware of who owns the property and what family runs all the strip clubs downtown. Not really sure how you weave that into some kind of diabolical plot, though.

    Why don’t we just wait until the authorities conduct an investigation to determine the cause of the gas leak and subsequent blast before we start casting conspiracy theories about. Or do you believe the authorities are also involved in this sinister plot?

  5. Well somebody is suspicious. The authorities are treating it like a crime scene and it is odd that Columbia Gas said they had no record of leaks. http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/timeframe_for_clean-up_still_u_1.html

  6. That’s standard procedure. Until they determine what happened, it’s only prudent to treat the location like a crime scene. Even if it does turn out to be criminal, that still in no way implicates the owners. It could be a disgruntled former employee, a religious nut, or, in the end, a faulty valve or pipeline. I’m not sure why no past records of leaks means there couldn’t be a first one?

  7. Matt, according to a Republican story this Saturday, there apparently was a previous call several months back about a leak there…

    “Employees had called the gas company several months ago about a distinct odor of gas and deemed the site safe, and on Friday the property manager called the gas company, he said.”

  8. I think I saw that. I’m just going by what Columbia Gas said. They’d have no motive to say different, unless they missed something (which is possible). But knowing the crew behind the city’s adult entertainment industrial complex, I’ll believe the gas company over them.
