Canaan Valley Gas Explosion

An unexpected 2006 gas explosion in the Pointy Knob subdivision of Canaan Valley killed four men and injured another. According to a report filed on the case, a cracked pipeline likely caused the deadly explosion. The Mills Group was utilized to create an accurately modeled site plan and the associated visual graphics to help explain and illustrate the scene as it existed before, during, and after the event. Notable contributions to the case included illustrative and analytical videos and models displaying the home and gasline in relation to the overall site, roadside, and the spot of the fracture.
