Everett Fire Confirms Propane Caused Fatal Explosion

propane

Propane fumes built up and then there was an explosion.

Today the Everett Fire Department confirmed a propane leak caused the explosion and fire that killed the owner of a coffee stand at 4th Avenue West and Everett Mall Way last month.

Here’s the official explanation…

Everett Fire investigators have completed their investigation of a Jan. 7, 2016, coffee stand fire critically injured a 26-year-old woman and ruled the fire an accident.

According to a witness, the victim was using a small camping-style space heater to heat the stand, and was refilling multiple small cylinders from a standard 20 lb. propane tank. The witness told investigators that he warned the victim that the smell of gas was dangerous and that she shouldn’t be in there. It was apparent that an accidental release of propane vapor occurred immediately before a flash that caused the fire. Several seconds after the flash, the victim escaped from the stand through a window. The victim died several days later at Harborview Medical Center.

Propane is an odorless gas, but contains an additive that smells like rotten eggs so people can detect it. The Everett Fire Department urges citizens to leave their house immediately and call 911 if they encounter an unusual smell.

City of Everett To Sue Over Price Fixing

price fixing

Everett gets its drinking water from Spada Lake.

Last night the Everett City Council voted to join Tacoma and Spokane in a class action lawsuit against General Chemical Corporation and several other firms and individuals for fixing the price of “Alum” or liquid aluminum sulfate.

The city will retain the law firm of Keller Rohrback, L.L.P. to represent its interests in the lawsuit.

Liquid Aluminum Sulfate is used for water purification and wastewater treatment.

The Department of Justice and the FBI have been investigating bid rigging, price fixing and other manipulation of prices for Alum charged to cities across the country going back more than a decade.

The City of Everett is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country expected to participate in the price fixing class-action suit.

You can see the City of Everett’s latest water quality report here for a better understanding of what goes into your drinking water.
