LAWRENCE, Mass. (WBZ-AM) — Trailers set up to provide temporary housing for those affected by the Columbia Gas explosions are coming down.

According to Columbia Gas, there are 39 families still currently living in the temporary trailer communities set up in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover. Those families will be moved into apartments and hotels as work is finished between now and Dec. 16.

Other families currently living in apartments and hotels are being moved closer to their residence, as more homes are restored.

A pressure problem caused a crisis Sept. 13, causing all of South Lawrence and parts of Andover to be evacuated. One person reportedly died.

Last month, trailers set up on the O’Connell Common were affected by freezing pipes due to a snow storm. The incident compromised the water supply in the temporary trailer community.
