Contributing to the intensity of the ensuing fire was the large amount of natural gas which had accumulated in the attic and between the original exterior walls of the house and a newer exterior brick veneer. Contributing to the accident was the fact that none of the victims reported previously detected gas odors to the gas company or to the fire department. The report contains recommendations to the Office of Pipeline Safety, the ASME Gas Piping Standards Committee, and Columbia Gas of West Virginia, Inc., intended to prevent a recurrence of an accident of this type.
