NY Post: Con Edison's role in last week's NYC explosion to be probed

Consolidated Edison (ED) reportedly will be investigated following last week's deadly gas explosion in Harlem to determine whether the company’s negligence caused the blast.

The NTSB is poring over ED’s call logs and the maintenance history of the problematic gas lines, and likely will release a written update tomorrow on the investigation’s initial findings.

CEO John McAvoy said last week that the gas mains in the area had been surveyed as recently as last summer, but ED could be blamed for the blast if the NTSB concludes the aging pipes were neglected or not properly maintained.
