Lawsuit Filed in Propane Explosion

The State Fire Marshal ruled it an accident but one company is blaming a propane explosion on negligence.

Black smoke filled the Lubbock sky-line when a propane tank exploded at Wylie's L.P. Gas near 82nd and the Interstate back in February. The explosion forced evacuations and backed up traffic for hours. Several businesses in the area sustained significant damage. Now, one of those businesses is suing Wylie L.P. gas claiming negligence.

Advanced Automotive says the company did not properly store and maintain propane cylinders.
