LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A family whose members suffered burns when a natural gas pipeline exploded last week in Bushland is suing the companies involved.
The Torres family filed a negligence lawsuit in Potter County against the pipeline's owner, El Paso Natural Gas Company; its parent company, El Paso Corporation; and the pipeline operator, Atmos Energy.
The pipeline exploded November 5th, shaking homes, melting window blinds, and shooting flames hundreds of feet in the air. The Torres' house is about 100 yards from where the pipeline exploded. Bushland is about 15 miles west of Amarillo.
