No foul play found in Mas­sachusetts blasts

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation -

LAWRENCE, Mass. — There’s no ev­i­dence to sug­gest the gas ex­plo­sions that rocked com­mu­ni­ties north of Bos­ton were in­ten­tional, a fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tor said Satur­day.

As fed­eral of­fi­cials opened their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Thurs­day’s dis­as­ter, National Trans­porta­tion Safety Board Chair­man Robert Sumwalt said that there didn’t ap­pear to be “any­thing ne­far­i­ous, any­thing sus­pi­cious, any­thing in­ten­tional.”

He said in­ves­ti­ga­tors would work to de­velop a time­line go­ing back at least three weeks, in­clud­ing re­view­ing any re­ports of gas odors re­ported by res­i­dents in the af­fected com­mu­ni­ties of Lawrence, North An­dover and An­dover.
