EWING, N.J. — A gas line damaged by a contractor exploded “like a bomb” while crews worked to repair it Tuesday at a town house development in New Jersey, and seven workers were injured and at least one home destroyed and others damaged.
PSE&G utility got a call shortly before noon that a contractor had damaged a gas line, spokeswoman Lindsey Puliti said. Utility crews were repairing it about an hour later when the gas line ignited, injuring five PSE&G workers and two people who worked for the contractor, according to Ewing police Lt. Ron Lunetta.
