Chandler explosion caused by human reporting error, says Southwest Gas

A natural gas leak and resulting explosion at a Chandler printing business that left four people injured Aug. 26 was attributed to a human reporting error and a prematurely degraded pipe, according to preliminary findings released Wednesday by Southwest Gas. 

Investigators from multiple agencies, including the Chandler police and fire departments, ATF’s National Response Team and crews from Southwest Gas found no sign of foul play in the explosion at Platinum Printing near Ray and Rural roads

The cause was determined to be accidental, not criminal, according to an Aug. 31 Chandler police news release.
