Cleanup starts at explosion site
Debris that settled over properties on North Bend Way in the early hours of April 25 is being cleaned up. Although the King County Fire Investigation Unit concluded in early July that the explosion was accidental, caused by natural gas, their investigation was one of many being run on the site. Individual property owners were also allowed to examine the accident scene.
Earlier this month, North Bend officials announced that the property owner of the blast site, 530 to 570 North Bend Way, will begin clearing the site.
City staff has heard from many citizens frustrated with the delay in cleaning up the area, however, the city was responsible only for issuing the permits for the work, which has been done. The city is also working with the property owner to provide planner services to facilitate rebuilding at the site. Citizens can contact the Community & Economic Development Department at (425) 888-5633.
