Victory Auto Parts Blast Fitchburg UPDATE

I returned to the scene of the Blast at Vic­tory Auto Parts in Fitch­burg Today:

The dam­age is more impres­sive in the light of day. The Blast took out the office on the left side of the building

Dropped bits of it

in the sur­round­ing trees

Victory Auto Blast Update Stills 007

And blew out win­dows in the house next door

As the build­ing depart­ment meets with the own­ers (who nor­mally would have been in that office that exploded).

Victory Auto Blast Update Stills 005

The ques­tion became why a gas explo­sion in a build­ing heated by oil?

it appears the leak came from an old capped off gas line, and the gas built up and was set off by some­thing. The explo­sion being under the office would also explain why the blast didn’t kill or seri­ously injure the peo­ple actu­ally in the busi­ness at the time of the blast.

The Boston Net­works are all over the place

The Donut shop across the street is doing some busi­ness from the news peo­ple in town no word if Con­quest video is as well.

My final report

So two busi­ness closed, per­haps per­ma­nently but all things con­sid­ered given strength of the blast there are a lot more bless­ings to count than costs in the light of day.

Update: MSM reports Fox, CBS Boston, 7 News, WCVB 5, NECN twice, the Globe, the Worces­ter Telegram and of course the Sen­tinel and Enterprise

Accord­ing to Mayor Lisa Wong, the explo­sion broke every win­dow in the Lin­wood Street home clos­est to the build­ing, leav­ing its two occu­pants with­out a place to stay until the glass is cleaned up and the win­dows replaced.

Res­i­dents in the sur­round­ing neigh­bor­hoods felt the force of the blast. Kristy Mur­phey, 23, was home dye­ing her hair with her room­mates when they felt the house move.

We thought a car hit the house,” said Murphey’s room­mate, Vanna Rawleigh, 28.

They ran out­side to see what hap­pened as a crowd gath­ered around the site.

The “car hit the house” was the com­mon theme when talk­ing to peo­ple about the event.

According to Mayor Lisa Wong, the explosion broke every window in the Linwood Street home closest to the building, leaving its two occupants without a place to stay until the glass is cleaned up and the windows replaced.
