A lawsuit has been filed against Dominion East Ohio Gas Co. and an investment company arising out of a home explosion that occurred in January, damaging 57 buildings on Cleveland’s West Side. The lawsuit, filed in state court, alleges that Dominion and the California-based company, EZ Access Funding, are to blame for the explosion. It’s alleged that EZ Access shirked its responsibility for maintaining a vacant two-story home on West 83rd Street. The house had been vacant since at least last summer, according to the lawsuit. It’s alleged that Dominion failed to make sure gas to the house was shut off when residents complained of the odor of gas four days before the blast. Fortunately, no persons were killed or injured by the explosion. But there was considerable property damage done.
