Two Dead, One Seriously Injured After Gas Line Explodes in Coolidge

Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Aug 19, 2021 in Local

Gas line COOLIDGE, AZ - Two people died and a third was severely burned after a gas line exploded just outside of Coolidge on Sunday, KTAR reports.

The pipeline, which is managed by Kinder-Morgan, was part of the El Paso Natural Gas Company system near Randolph Road and SH-87.

Authorities received reports of an explosion in the area at about 5:30 a.m. A woman who suffered serious burns was picked up by a sheriff’s deputy after she was discovered walking around a nearby farmhouse. She has since been identified as Rosalina Alvarez.

Police say two people were found dead inside a home located across the street from the site of the explosion. The two deceased are believed to be Luis Alvarez and his 14-year-old daughter. However, that information has not yet been confirmed.

The cause of the explosion remains under investigation.
