Twin Natural Gas Explosions Reduce NW Portland Business to Rubble

Real Estate
Twin Explosions Destroy Portland Bagelworks Building at NW 23rd & Glisan St. The explosions happened around 9am this morning (October 19th, 2016) as a result of a leaking natural gas main near the Portland Bagelworks. Other buildings including the Dosha Salon & Spa were heavily damaged by the blasts. Authorities blame the leak on a building contractor who made contact and apparently compromised the gas main pipe while digging nearby with an excavator. Employees smelled gas inside local businesses and notified authorities and evacuated the area. At this time natural gas and electricity services remain off in the area.
