Abstract:

About 12:25 a.m. on July 7, 1998, a natural gas explosion and fire destroyed a newly constructed residence in the South Riding community in Loudoun County, Virginia. A family consisting of a husband and wife and their two children were spending their first night in their new home at the time of the explosion. As a result of the accident, the wife was killed, the husband was seriously injured, and the two children received minor injuries. Five other homes and two vehicles were damaged. The safety issues identified during this investigation were (1) the adequacy of standards for minimum separation distances between gas service lines and electrical service lines and (2) the lack of a requirement for the installation of excess flow valves.

As a result of this investigation, the Safety Board made two recommendations to the Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) and one to the Edison Electrical Institute, the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the American Power Association, and the U. S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service.
