GJ’s insurance company hires investigator in probe of gas leak explosion

The city of Grand Junction’s insurance company, Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency, has hired an independent investigator to look into the circumstances surrounding the gas leak explosion on March 19.

Several people were injured and two homes burned to the ground after an explosion at one of the homes, 1752 N. Seventh St. and the fire spread to next door, 1742 N. Seventh St.

CIRSA has hired engineers from the Advanced Engineering Investigations Corporation, engineers with experience in gas explosion investigations including finding the cause and origin of an event, according to the city.

A full investigation is expected to “take a significant period of time because of the nature of the incident, the number of parties involved and in the interest of the investigation being as complete as possible,” the city said in a press release.
