St. Charles Parish Residents Return Home

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 10-Feb-2017

The lives of several residents and industrial oil workers of St. Charles Paris, Louisiana were drastically affected in a recent oil pipeline explosion. Louisiana state highways 90 and 631 were shut down in both directions, containing the area as safety precaution, but authorities are now allowing residents to reoccupy their homes as the fire is contained and slowly dissipates.

A total of six workers were injured in the explosion. While three of the workers suffered minor injuries and are in stable condition, we are still awaiting word on the three others whose injuries were more pressing. All three of them are currently hospitalized and one was airlifted to a specialized burn unit. Authorities remain especially concerned with recovering the whereabouts of a missing worker.

The incident occurred during a routine cleaning wherein it seems that a valve or gasket failed and exposed the inhabitants of St. Charles Parish to a fire some 30-40 feet wide. Sources state that the best course of action will be to let the fire burn itself out, as its fuel and range are finite.

As the fire persists, we at Arnold & Itkin are hoping the injured workers are successfully treated and the missing worker located in good condition. In the interim, we take notable comfort in the fact that the families of the 60 evacuated homes have been approved to safely return.
