ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — The deadline for residents and businesses to file a claim for a portion of the $143 million legal settlement related to the 2018 natural gas explosions in Massachusetts has been extended to the end of the month.
An attorney says to help people file claims or answer questions, lawyers for the plaintiffs who sued Columbia Gas of Massachusetts have scheduled three meetings this month, on Jan. 4, 18 and 25 at Greater Lawrence Technical High School in Andover.
The explosions and fires in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover on Sept. 13, 2018, killed one person and damaged or destroyed more than 100 buildings.
