MCSO responds to explosion

      Two Sanilac Drain and Tile Company workers were injured following a natural gas line rupture in Richmond on June 3.
       At 1 p.m., the Macomb County Sheriff's Office received a call referencing a loud explosion in the area of Place Road south of 33 Mile Road.
       Deputies and emergency personnel responded. Investigations revealed that a crew was laying tile in a field and ruptured a gas line belonging to Blue Water Gas Storage and caused an explosion. Two men, ages 52 and 23, were injured as a result, and were transported to the hospital for treatment. Both men were reported as being in stable condition.
       Built-in safety valves activated to shut off the leaking gas. No other injuries or damage to property were reported.
